Schedule of Events‎ > ‎Fall 2014‎ > ‎


Before you buy any software, remember that you may be able to obtain certain common computer programs at no cost (e.g. antivirus software). Some of these programs are available as downloads, and others can be borrowed from Hoya Computing's Lending Library.

Faculty and Staff making Institutional Purchases should review the guidelines for these purchases

UIS Software Database
Many programs are available at reduced cost, so make sure to check the UIS Software Database to see what's available to you (when prompted, enter your NetID and password to access the database).

CDW-G Personal Portal
CDWG is able to provide discount pricing for many technology products and software packages. First time CDW-G users without an account, click here.  If you have any questions you can contact Hoya Computing or contact one of the Georgetown University Account Managers listed at the bottom of the CDW-G page.

Georgetown's Microsoft, Adobe, and Specialized Software Portal (E-Academy)
Student purchases of Microsoft, Adobe, SPSS, VMWare and more can be made through Georgetown's Microsoft Portal (E-Academy). Most products are available for immediate download and cost less than mail order. You will be prompted to enter your net-id and password.

GU Bookstore (Leavey Center)
You can also buy software from the GU Bookstore in the Leavey Center. The bookstore's telephone number is (202) 687-7482.  Before purchasing software, please note that certain new computer systems include a wide variety of software. If software is included with your computer, you do not need to purchase it separately. Students are not covered by Georgetown's Microsoft Campus Agreement. Students must make sure that they purchase word processing, spread sheet, and presentation software with a new computer. Please check with your computer's manufacturer to verify which software titles are included in your system.
