As of August 1, 2017, software access at Campus Computing Sites is granted based on university affiliation: student, faculty, staff, sponsored affiliate, alumni, and guest. When you log in to a Sites computer or a Virtual Sites session, you will be able to access software that is permitted to be used by your affiliation. If you have multiple affiliations, you will be able to access software granted to each one.
Browse the Sites Software List for software available to your U-M affiliation (student, faculty, student, etc) on Macs and PCs.
Sites software availability is grouped by the following types of use and the corresponding UM-Ann Arbor affiliations by default. If you are affiliated with the UM-Dearborn or UM-Flint campuses, you will have guest access.

Request an Exception
You may request access to additional software titles even if that tile is not eligible to due to your affiliation with the university. If you intend to use an application for one of the “available for” categories listed above, you may submit an Exception Request Form.
Sites staff review and approve exceptions on a case-by-case basis. Exceptions are valid for one academic year and expire annually on August 1. You will have to submit a new request to renew your exception for the next academic year.
If you have questions, please contact the ITS Service Center.
Other Options for U-M Staff
If you are a staff member who does not qualify to receive an exception, or if you need long-term access to the software, you have the following options:
- Follow your department’s software request process to request access to use the software on your university-provided computer. You may order from U-M Procurement’s M-Marketsite or from ITS Software Licensing and Distribution.
- If you have a computer supported by MiWorkspace, refer to Install or Request Additional Software for additional software options provided by ITS.
- The Computer Showcase offers software at academic pricing for use on personally-owned devices.
