CIS Software Services negotiates and manages software licenses for the most commonly used applications at Brown. The software distribution download page provides an extensive list of available software which is available to members of the Brown community at no cost, which as of January 2014 now includes Microsoft software for students. Stand alone copies of software are also available for faculty and staff who require unrestricted access to certain packages. Software Services will assist in finding the best alternative source for software not available on the download page.
Most software is free; standalone copies have an associated cost which varies based on the software.
