Software and Hardware

Want to get the newest version of your favorite software but don't want to pay retail price? Now students, faculty, and staff can download many software programs for free or pay a reduced price to buy on disc.

IU has negotiated special deals for students, faculty and staff, with many software vendors. These deals are for the full product, not a special "light" version with some features disabled. What you don't get are manuals and free phone support from the maker of the software.
