IST Webstore

The IST Webstore provides access to most site-licensed software that requires internal cost recovery, and to no-cost campus licenses.

Access is limited to university employees.

All transactions are internal transfers that require a university account in the Unit4 system.

Most software is restricted to use for university business. Some software is restricted to university-owned machines.

The IST Webstore can be used to:

  • purchase software using a university account number,
  • assign software licenses to users or computers,
  • download license files,
  • initiate installation of software on managed machines, and
  • get access to software installers on a network share.
