The Microsoft Select License Agreement allows us to distribute a number of Microsoft software products at a substantial discount for University of Toronto departments, faculty, and staff on University of Toronto owned workstations. To obtain Microsoft products for personal use, you must purchase them from the U of T Computer Shop.
Microsoft licenses its products on a per-workstation basis. A license must be purchased for each workstation that the software will be installed on.
The select agreement also allows "Downgrade Rights". This means that you purchase the license for the latest version of the product but can install and use a prior version. The agreement does not allow for upgrade of products at discounted prices. If you wish to install a newer version of a currently owned product, a new license must be purchased.
