Notice of change in Microsoft licenses as of 2015

This post is over 5 years old, it may be out of date.

The ISC let us know that by January 1, 2015 there will be a new licensing agreement with Microsoft through Surfmarket. The main difference appears to be that the license for Microsoft Office on Windows PCs owned by the University, will be followed by a license for Office 365 Plan E3 (formerly A3) for all RU staff. This will most likely mean that installing Office on Windows PCs and iPads/iPhones that are private property of RU staff will be possible under the license as of January 1, 2015. More information will follow in the first quarter of 2015.
