Princeton Software Center - Faculty & Staff Software Purchases and Licensing

The Princeton Software Center, formerly the OIT Store, is the new website to obtain Princeton volume and site licensed software. Faculty and staff may buy and download software through the Princeton Software Center using a chartstring. Some software may require a credit card for purchase. You are able to order software on behalf of another user. 

The OIT Store Back Office has been shut down and will no longer send auto-generated license expiry email notifications. When purchasing licenses in the Princeton Software Center, we would suggest creating reminders for license expiration dates so you can conveniently purchase or renew your Princeton Software licenses if continued access will be needed.

Software for Faculty, Staff and Departments

Princeton offers several software products for which we have site or volume licensing for use on institutional computers only. 

Work at Home rights

Some software products licensed for institutional computers include Work At Home (WAH) Rights, which allow faculty or staff to install a copy on their personally-owned computer. Faculty and staff are entitled to install selected products on one personally-owned computer by virtue of being a Princeton University employee.  When a faculty/staff member leaves the employ of Princeton University, they must remove any software installed under Work at Home rights. See  Software Retention Policy.
