Eligibility for Microsoft Campus Agreement

This article applies to: Software Licensing


Cornell University has renewed our Campus Agreement with Microsoft to provide the Desktop Bundle for all computers owned by Cornell University.

Full overview of the Microsoft Campus Agreement:

The Campus Agreement currently allows Cornell University staff, faculty, and affiliates* to download selected Microsoft Windows desktop operating systems and install them onto computers owned by Cornell University and its affiliated institutions at no cost.  Computers must have been initially purchased with a licensed version of Microsoft Windows operating system to qualify.

Students, retirees, and alumni are not covered by the Campus Agreement, and are not authorized to download software covered by the Agreement. 

Please note that the Weill Cornell Medical College has its own arrangement in place with Microsoft, and is not covered by the Campus Agreement. Weill Cornell staff and faculty should check with their local IT providers for information about Microsoft licensing.
