As a student (or faculty) at UMass, you have access to a variety of software. Some of that is as part of a site license (typically on campus computers), as free student licenses (that you can install on your own computers), or as reduced-cost licenses. See the following list for details:

UMass Site Licenses / Computer Classrooms

UMass Computer Classrooms have a lot of software installed on every computer. You can find the list of programs here. In addition, students and faculty have access to a large list of free or discounted software, including operating systems.
