2. OSU has arranged for a site-license for MATLAB that allows students and faculty to install on up to 4 devices. A network connection is not required (no central license server). Click here for instructions.
We are a small background team who administer several site licenses and bulk purchase deals. We facilitate the distribution of software and codes, sometimes recouping costs at a college, school or individual level, within the terms and conditions of the licenses.
Software prices and availability may change without notice. Site license deals and special purchase deals often depend on sufficient demand within the University and the academic community as a whole, therefore the discounted prices available through these schemes cannot be guaranteed to be available indefinitely.
Azure Dev Tools for Teaching is a Microsoft program to provide students with software design and development tools at no charge (similar programs to this used to include Microsoft Dreamspark and Microsoft IMAGINE). Microsoft software licensed under the Azure program is available for students and faculty that use this software for educational purposes. Previously students would need to be part of a STEM program and request an account for Microsoft Imagine/Dreamspark. This is no longer the case as Microsoft has changed their service. Now all students (not just STEM) have access to Azure for Students. There are instructions for how to access software in Azure Dev Tools for Teaching here. You can access your account here.
Some software at Cornell is acquired through software licenses that are managed by the university. Some of these software licenses enable all faculty, staff, or students to use the software at no cost. Others limit who is eligible to use the software or have a fee. Each licensed product has its own eligibility criteria, and not all products are licensed at all locations.
CU Software's core service is software acquisition and license management. We help the Cornell community save on software costs by using economies of scale and promoting software license opportunities, on average saving the university an estimated $2.1 million a year. We handle all the details involved in providing the lowest prices for the software the Cornell community uses. We encourage all departments to consider assigning their software licensing to us so the university can maximize its purchasing power. 2b1af7f3a8
