Microsoft Campus Agreement

Program Information

To provide Tufts’ employees with access to Microsoft Office and Windows upgrades on University computers, the University participates in a consortium agreement, the Microsoft Campus Agreement. Microsoft reserves the right to cease offering the Campus Agreement Program at any time. Tufts’ current Campus Agreement has a 5-year term and runs through June, 2014. The cost of the Campus Agreement is based on a count of full and part-time faculty and staff as reported to the government annually.  The program is funded centrally.

Software Distribution on the Tufts Campuses

Software for installation on computers which are owned or leased by Tufts University is now available from each school’s or division's IT support organization. Since each support organization may have specific policies and procedures regarding the distribution and installation of the covered software products, faculty and staff should contact their respective IT Support Provider or Local Support Organization for assistance and information.

Work-at-Home Use

The Campus Agreement includes a Work-at-Home benefit which permits University employees to obtain and install MS Office and MS Windows upgrades on a personally-owned computer so that University employees can also perform their work at home or remotely. Upon separating from the university, faculty and staff who have installed Campus Agreement software on a personally-owned computer are obligated to uninstall and delete the software.

Faculty and staff may obtain Work-at-Home media through Kivuto On-The-Hub. Software is available for the cost of the media, and can be purchased here. Log in with a Tufts Username and Tufts Password is required and available media is subject to change.

Individuals wishing to make a personal purchase must first authenticate themselves by either clicking the Sign In link located in the upper-right corner of and entering their Tufts Username and Tufts Password or by doing so directly at Once authenticated, individuals will be re-directed to the On the Hub site, where the order may be placed.
