Faculty/Staff Software Discounts

Microsoft Windows

Butler-owned computers: IT has no immediate plans to install Windows 10 on campus devices. We have begun researching and testing to ensure it works with all of our software properly, and will communicate to campus when it is available for Butler-owned devices. 

Personal computers: Windows 10 will work well on your personal computer on campus. However, Microsoft has deployed a new web browser on Windows 10 named “Edge”.  You may experience some issues using Edge with some Butler services, and if you do, we suggest using another browser such as IE, Chrome, or Firefox.   

Want to get Windows 10 on your personal computer? Free upgrades are available from Microsoft to qualified devices currently running Windows 7, 8, or 8.1.  Click here for more information.

FREE Microsoft Office 365 ProPlus

Microsoft Office 365 ProPlus apps are now available for current faculty and staff to download for personal use at no cost (note: access ends when no longer an employee at Butler). Details and download instructions are available on our FREE Microsoft Office 365 ProPlus for Students, Faculty, and Staff page. See the FAQ section for even more information.
