Software Licensing for Departments

Shopper’s Guide > Fundamentals of Procurement > How to Buy Goods > Computers, Software, and Peripherals

Please create and Internal Service Request and input “IS&T – Service Center Help Center” as Provider name when purchasing software from IT Help Center.

Boston University negotiates university-wide software licensing from Microsoft and Adobe, offering departments a substantial savings. The IT Help Center handles fulfillment of the Adobe and Microsoft Campus Licensing Programs. All other purchases for departmental use should be submitted through Sourcing and Procurement.

Microsoft and Adobe licenses must be purchased with an Internal Service Request. No P-Cards or personal funds may be used. To learn how to make a purchase with an ISR, please consult with your department’s administrator.
