Software Distribution

Purdue University offers several popular software packages to individuals and groups here at the University.  Availability restrictions, versions offered, distribution means, and cost of software result from the agreement details between Purdue University and the specific software vendor.


Individual Purchases

Individuals can purchase software for individual use from the OnTheHub online store (formerly Kivuto).  After authentication using your Purdue login and password, you will be taken to the Purdue Web Store where you can select software for purchase.  Software ordered through OnTheHub can be downloaded directly to your computer or, for an additional charge, shipped to you on CD/DVD disc.

OnTheHub offers a range of software negotiated under Purdue's campus agreements, including several Microsoft and Adobe products. In addition, Purdue's OnTheHub storefront offers other special academically-priced software for term purchase, such as SPSS, Minitab, Parallels, and SAS.  Be sure to carefully review product details for system requirements, and for term licenses, the length of time your purchase allows for use of the software product.

Departmental Purchases

Some departmental site licenses require Purdue University to distribute software through a central point. Where appropriate, we can perform this service as defined in the applicable agreements. We also can ensure that agreement terms are disseminated with the software. The central location for software distribution is the reception area, Young Hall, fifth floor.

Note that participation in the ITaP Shopping program is at the discretion of the student, faculty or staff member, and the purchase contract is between the purchaser and the vendor. Purdue University is not a party to sale; negotiations to resolve any disputes with the vendor will be the responsibility of the purchaser.


University Sponsored

The cost of some software products are covered by sponsoring organizations.  Product availability contingent upon specific software agreement limitations and number of licenses free for distribution.
