Discounts on Microsoft software available to UCOP staff
You are eligible to purchase Microsoft software products for your use at home at a considerable discount through UC’s Microsoft Home Use Program.
UCOP employees can purchase a licensed copy of Microsoft Office, Project and Visio for Windows, or Microsoft Office for Macintosh, for just $9.95 each to install and use on their personally owned home computer. The software may be used for personal purposes and is not restricted to work use.
You can install the same license on one desktop and one laptop computer, but only one copy may be used at a time. All support issues or questions should be directed to Microsoft customer support. UCOP Information Technology Services (ITS) does not support the download, installation or use of these products.
The Home Use Program is available to all current UCOP employees; contractors are not eligible. Employees may continue using the software while employed at UCOP and as long as UC continues to participate in the program and license Microsoft Office, Project and Visio.
For complete details, including other restrictions and instructions on how to purchase software packages, go to the ITS Microsoft Home Use Program website.
The Link to purchase the Microsoft Home use Program doesn’t work.
Hi Shoab — This article is from 2013, and it doesn’t seem like there is a Microsoft discount for UCOP employees any longer. You can find current employee discounts here.
