Software & Applications

The following links will help you find everything you want to know about software and applications at KU: what software is offered free, what is available at a reduced price, where to get training, and what software is installed in the open computer labs on campus.

KU students can get a free copy of Microsoft Office or Windows, and KU faculty and staff can purchase discounted Microsoft Office and Windows products by choosing from the list below.

Customers are permitted to use software under the terms of a license which sets out what they can and cannot do with the software. Using software in any way which breaches the license, or using software without a license, is considered misuse of software.
