Microsoft Titles

Centrally Purchased Software

UTS has a volume licensing contract with Microsoft and the following software titles can be installed for free on UNIVERSITY OWNED MACHINES ONLY:

Windows 7 Enterprise

Microsoft Office, PC and Macintosh Editions



How to get the software titles above

Please submit your "Home Use Program" media requests to the UTS Helpdesk via http://go.du.edu/supportrequest

Installation files are made available over a secure network share. NO volume license keys will be given out, as per our licensing agreement with Microsoft. Keys are embedded in our installation files for Office 2007 Enterprise. Windows 7 & 8 Enterprise do not use volume license keys to install and instead activate through our network with a KMS server. After initial installation of Windows, it will require activation with our KMS server within 30 days, which is done automatically if connected to DU's network. Windows needs to renew activation with our KMS server every 180 days with a 30 day grace period before entering into Reduced Functionality Mode. Users need to be aware of this before leaving campus for extended periods of time as Reduced Functionality Mode allows only activation requests and nothing more. It is possible to use the external VPN if off campus in order to have Windows activate with our KMS server.

Can you install it at home?

Only full time, benefitted DU employees that count towards our FTE count qualify for the "Home Use Program". Students and adjunct faculty DO NOT QUALIFY for this program. The "Home Use Program" allows a copy of Microsoft Office to be installed on a qualified employee's personal owned PC or Mac (non-DU owned) for both business and personal use. A nominal $10 fee is required to purchased the media/license. Limited to one license activation on one computer. Please contact the UTS Helpdesk at x14700 for all "Home Use Program" media requests.
