Software Services

Software Services offers software licensing and purchasing for University of Michigan departments. For a list of available software, please visit the Software Licensing & Distribution and UmichITAM websites.

Software Services provides:

  • Software at prices negotiated by the University of Michigan
  • Support during contract renewals and new license agreements 
  • Customer support when you have questions about requesting and purchasing software for your department

Looking for software for personal use? Visit the Computer Showcase for sales, service and support of personal technology for students, faculty, staff, and alumni.

Coming soon: New online software store for departmental orders

A new way to request and order software will be available for the university community later in 2018. The new web store will provide software licenses previously available through the Software Licensing & Distribution and UmichITAM sites. It will also provide options for tracking purchases and viewing departmental purchase histories. More detail and a timeline will be shared in the future.

About the Software Services team

In November 2017, ITS Software Services was formed when ITS Software Licensing & Distribution and UmichITAM teams combined as one team. Working together with campus partners, the team’s goal is to provide excellent customer service for purchasing software to use for teaching, learning, research, patient care, and university business.

We want to hear from you! If you have questions about your department’s software, the new software services team, or if you have feedback for our service strategy, please contact Matt Walters, manager of Software Services, at
