Software for Home Use

Bentley's Microsoft Campus Licensing Agreement allows faculty and staff the right to use a second copy of Microsoft software at home, including Office and Windows, at minimum or no cost. Depending on how you plan to use these Microsoft products on your non-Bentley computer will determine what option you choose.  Please note, the campus agreement restricts users to one of the two options below. 

  1. Bentley work only: If the work you do in Microsoft Office is solely for Bentley business, you can contact the Computing Services Desk and request a copy of the media. You will be required to sign a form acknowledging that the copy of the license is for Bentley purposes only and, if you leave Bentley, that you will remove the software from the computer.
  2. Personal and work use: Bentley's Microsoft Campus Licensing Agreement provides an incredible discount on a personal, perpetual license for Microsoft Office 2010 and other Microsoft software. Faculty and Staff can purchase these software packages via E-Academy.  Once purchased, this software is licensed to you personally and not subject to the restrictions of the free media received through the Computing Services Desk.
