About Licensed Software
The Licensed Software Office (LSO) negotiates and administers software license agreements with many vendors in order to decrease overall software costs to the University. The software can be purchased by U of T students, faculty and staff. However, depending on our agreement with the vendor, not all software is available to everyone.
Moving Online The Licensed Software Office is Moving Online
Because of the overwhelming success of our online storefronts which provide access to downloadable software, the LSO will be closing its counter-storefront as of July 10, 2017 and moving to an online only presence.
uSOURCE is the online storefront where departments, faculty, and staff can purchase software using University of Toronto Financial Information System (FIS) accounts. A majority of the software can be downloaded immediately after purchase with the exception being those requiring software vendor account creation or internal checks. For information on uSOURCE and account creation please see Procurement Service's website.
software.utoronto.ca is the online storefront where purchases can be made using credit card or Interac debit cards. It is also the website where all purchases, including those made through uSOURCE, are downloaded. Please note that off-campus access by graduate students, faculty, and staff requires the installation of UTORvpn.
For software purchases requiring DVD media, please complete the paper order form and scan and email it to our office. We will then set an appointment for pickup at a later date. Please note that as a result of this move we can no longer accept faxed orders.
Payment Options Discontinuation of Journal Entries and Invoicing
Beginning May 1, 2017 the Licensed Software Office will no longer accept payment using journal entries (debit memos) or invoicing. Our order forms have be updated to reflect this change.
