ESRI Licenses

The UW-Madison participates in the UW-System site license for almost all ESRI software. Our site license allows the installation of esri software on any University-owned computer. This includes machines in faculty, staff, and graduate student offices. ESRI software may be used for teaching, research, or administration, but not for consulting or other for-profit work.

The Site License contract (somewhat out of date) can be viewed Here.  An overview of the latest Institutional Agreement is Here.

Departments wishing to install the software on UW-Owned machines must participate in the annual maintenance.  Fees and an order form Here.

In addition, our contract allows installation on Faculty or Staff personal Computers, as well as Student PCs, for non-commercial use.  All licenses are for a one year period, from July 1 to June 30 of each year.
