Purchasing Campus Software

Information Technology purchases all software for UWSP.   This includes physical software and internet-based service software, "software as a service" (SAAS).

Work-related software purchases must comply with all state contracts.  Information Technology maintains the licenses for software used throughout the university. 

Before requesting a software purchase

  1. Confirm the software is not already available in the standard campus load (SCL) or can be installed through the Software Center (Windows PC) or Self Service for Macs

  2. Contact IT Purchasing for contract and special software pricing.
