Software Central is the campus-wide service to manage software licensing and distribution for common and commonly used software for staff, faculty, and students.

The centralized software licensing and distribution has resulted in:

  • an overall decrease in the cost for campus to provide software
  • a general increase in usage
  • a more equitable cost distribution

Software Central’s goal is to provide the widest set of campus licensed software to the broadest population while minimizing the administrative costs of delivering and managing them. Software Licensing and Distribution affects nearly every department and unit on campus as the software includes packages for research, teaching, and administration.
