Microsoft Campus Agreement Benefits Faculty and Staff

By Claudia Lynch, Benchmarks Online Editor

Sometimes when things have been around awhile, it slips our minds that not everyone on campus is aware of them. Thus it is with the Microsoft Campus Agreement. As Dr. Maurice Leatherbury, Executive Director of Information Technology and Academic Computing, noted in a recent E-mail to the campus, UNT has had an agreement with Microsoft for the past five years wherein the following Microsoft software products are available at very low prices to UNT employees:

  • Office Pro for Windows
  • Office for Mac
  • FrontPage
  • Visual Studio Net Academic
  • Publisher
  • OneNote
  • Windows XP Pro Upgrade

According to Dr. Leatherbury, several versions of these products are available, for Windows 2000, XP, Mac OS X, and earlier versions of the Mac operating system. The cost of the products depends upon the number of CD's needed to hold the software: Office Pro for Windows, for example, is either $14.00 or $21.00 depending upon the version, and the Mac versions of Office are either $7.00 or $8.00. There are some restrictions on the use of the software, such as you may use the software for school-related purposes, and you must sign a user acceptance form to obtain the software. Only UNT employees (including TA's and TF's) may purchase the software.

The software is sold in the trade books section of the Bookstore, on the second floor of the Union. If you have further questions about the campus agreement and/or you need the software installed on your office computer(s), please contact your network manager. Please direct any questions about the terms of the agreement to Mike Wright (x3632).
