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.

Software Available for Download

IU students, faculty and staff have a large variety of the most popular software available for download at IUware. You will find a complete list by following the link.

Hardware Discounts

IU has negotiated substantial discounts with selected hardware and peripheral vendors like Apple, Dell and Sony for selected products. These discounts are available for students, faculty, and staff. Hardware that is not part of one of the "IU Packages" is not discounted at the same rate as the "package deals."

For more information about products available, visit the UITS Buying Hardware webpage.
