Welcome to Software.UCSB!

This site provides information gathered by the Campus Office of Software Licensing, regarding the software products available to the UCSB community. This information will remain relevant as the campus transitions to the Gateway E-Procurement system.

The Software Depot Online Order System stopped processing new requests effective February 1, 2013. This system has been made redundant by the implementation of the UCSB Procurement Gateway. After February 1,2013,  software purchases that previously would have been made through Software Depot should be placed using Gateway or whatever method the purchaser otherwise uses to acquire products directly from vendors. On Gateway, many popular software packages are listed for easy access in "Campus Software Favorites" under "Favorites". Exceptions are licenses for SAS, JMP, SPSS, MCCA and Mathematica. Please see links to more information for license renewals under the "Software Information" section in the menu above.

The Campus Office of Software Licensing (COSL) will continue to offer a variety of services in support of software acquisition at UCSB. This website will maintain up to date information about software packages and COSL services.

Software can no longer be purchased using the Software Depot online order management system. If you have questions, or would like more information - please contact software@lsit.ucsb.edu

Undergrad students should contat the UCSB Bookstore for software purchases.
