To learn more about Software Distribution at the University of Guelph, please visit our getting started page for information on licensing agreements accessible software, and more. The University distributes software for a wide variety of applications as well as facilitating the purchase of software from third-party vendors Kivuto and Microsoft.
Accessibility to individual software is based on a user’s designation at the University (i.e. Student, Staff, Faculty, Sponsored, etc.). Please note that a student designation will serve as a primary designation, which will restrict many different products from being purchased.
For personal use software, payment can be made by credit card or Pay Pal.
For institutional use only software, payment can be made by credit card, Pay Pal, or University Billing Code.
Note: All sales are final; there are no refunds or exchanges.
