New Microsoft campus agreement eliminates or reduces software costs for all at Yale
Microsoft has once again partnered with Yale Information Technology Services (ITS) to bring the Yale community significant savings on Microsoft products, including Microsoft Office and Windows 7. This new agreement not only cuts software costs for all University departments, it also makes upgrades easier for faculty, staff and students.
Effective immediately, when a department purchases a new computer, the Microsoft-licensed software can now be downloaded at a much reduced cost. Subsequent software upgrades to that computer or to pre-existing computers are covered at no additional cost. Students will also reap the benefits of this new partnership: They can download the Microsoft software free of charge and retain the licenses even after they have graduated from Yale. There is a small fee if they require media.
“We are delighted to partner with Microsoft to offer this tremendous deal to the campus,” says Len Peters, associate vice president and chief information officer. “The Microsoft campus agreement will save the University money and streamline our delivery of software licenses. Most importantly, though, we will improve access to standard tools for productivity to our students, faculty and staff.”
