Special Pricing for Personal Software

People often ask if Information Technology can sell them software for their own use. IT handles software purchases for the University and can only sell to departments on campus. We cannot sell to individuals.

Available Software

**Students, Faculty and Staff can install Microsoft Office 2016 for FREE from the UWSP Office 365 portal at http://office.uwsp.edu.  For more information visit our Office 365 and OneDrive for Business for home use page. 

UW-System has a contract with a number of software makers which allows students and staff to buy Microsoft products, including, Adobe/Macromedia products and other software at reduced rates from the WISC (Wisconsin Integrated Software Catalog) web site. Please review the online instructions and FAQs sections for assistance. 

Software you purchase from WISC must be installed on a personal computer you own. There are no refunds/returns or reimbursements on purchases made from WISC.


If a department wishes to purchase software for their employee's personal computer, they should contact IT Purchasing for assistance.

Employees can also often purchase software when they buy a new computer. The University Store sells software as do other local vendors.
