Welcome to the Campus Office of Software Licensing

The Campus Office of Software Licensing (COSL) coordinates site licenses and volume purchases of specialized software to provide discounted pricing. 

Volume licenses are negotiated either independently within our office or in coordination with other UC campuses via the UC-Technology Acquisition Support (UC-TAS) group. 

COSL does not provide procurement services for single purchases of specialized software titles; COSL handles software purchase agreements only if they reach a scale by which significant volume discounts are available.
