As a part of the Operational Excellence–sponsored Productivity Suite project, Berkeley has signed a campus license agreement to provide the most commonly used Microsoft software to all faculty, staff, and students. There is no cost to individuals or departments for the MS software for the 2017–18 fiscal year.
MS Operating System Downloads
Faculty, Staff and Students may download one copy of the MS Operating System products listed below. The software may be retained by Faculty and Staff upon separation, and by Students following graduation from the University.
IMPORTANT: It is strongly recommended that you archive your download and activation key to an external location (e.g. flash drive, external hard drive) for use in the event a re-install is required (e.g. system crash, upgrade or replacement).
