King’s University College Information Technology Services has signed a campus agreement with Microsoft to offer Office and operating system software on campus. This agreement is funded by ITS and provides Microsoft Office software for all College owned PCs, including faculty/staff PCs, research labs and student labs. The Microsoft Campus Agreement also allows authorized technicians to upgrade existing Microsoft Windows installations on on-campus, College owned computers.  It does not cover upgrading non-College owned computers, nor does it allow a technician to install any version of Windows on a computer that does not already have a Windows license previously purchased.

  • Office 365 Pro Plus with 2016 apps for PC or Mac (includes: Word, Access, PowerPoint, Excel, OneNote, Outlook, Skype, & Publisher)
  • Previous Editions of Office (includes: Office 2007/2010/2013 for Windows and Office 2008 for Mac)
  • Windows 7 & 8 Upgrade - Coverage allows upgrade to these operating systems from an existing, valid Windows operating system. The also includes upgrading to Enterprise editions of the same version (i.e. Windows 7 Home Premium to Enterprise)
  • Windows Downgrade Rights - Coverage includes downgrading an existing Windows installation to a previous version
  • Virtualization Rights - Virtualization includes coverage to install Windows on a computer without uninstalling the host operating system (i.e. Installation of Windows in Bootcamp/Fusion/Parallels)

Hardware covered by the agreement:

  • Staff computers located in offices at King’s
