University Owned Equipment
The Microsoft Campus Agreement (MSCA) provides licenses for faculty, staff, and student employee use of selected software products on all University owned or leased computers.
The head of each administrative unit (school, department, office, center, etc.) is responsible, within his or her unit, for compliance with software license terms and applicable University policies. In addition, each unit is responsible for keeping track of the number of installations of each Microsoft product acquired through the MSCA. On request, these records must be made available for summarizing University utilization of the MSCA.
Software available under the agreement is distributed on DVD or electronic download. The software may be installed on multiple University-owned or leased computers. Please see the frequently asked questions list for more information.
Departments and other administrative units may acquire copies of the media for any software products covered by the MSCA. Requests for these items should be from the head of the administrative unit (or his or her administrative assistant or designated computer support person) rather than from individual faculty and staff members. Included in the request should be the following information:
- Your unit's name and department number.
- The name, phone number, e-mail address, and campus mail address of the person to whom the software should be sent. This should be either the unit head or someone designated to distribute or install software for the unit.
- The Purdue account number (to be used for tracking purposes only).
- Name of each product desired.
Please order only those items you have definite plans to use in the near future. Orders should be e-mailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
DVDs may not be loaned to individuals for use on personally owned computers. Use by faculty, staff, and students on computers they own is handled separately.
