Software Licensing

Faculty, staff and students who would like to use software that is not covered by any of the campus-wide licensing agreements can submit a request to purchase a license. Once the funds have been transferred from the account specified in the ticket, the license will be automatically assigned to user's UWin Account for subscription based products. For other products, the license key will be e-mailed to the client with instructions.

University-owned computers that are joined to Azure Active Directory and managed via Intune, will have the software installed automatically as soon as the license is paid for and assigned. Users will also have the option to install it themselves form the University of Windsor app store or Company Portal app (replacement of SoftwareDepot).
