Software on Personally Owned Equipment

Hamilton's educational licensing agreements for software specifically limit installation to machines owned by the College. Therefore, software purchased by Hamilton under these agreements may not be installed on personally owned equipment. 

Microsoft Office "Work at Home" License
Our current license agreement with Microsoft does allow the installation of one copy of Microsoft Office on the home machine of an employee who has Office on the work machine.  There is a nominal fee.  To purchase Office 2013 (Windows) or Office 2011 (Mac), contact LITS at 315-859-4169 or email tlapinsk@hamilton.edu.

Anti-virus and anti-spyware software
Sophos Anti-virus software is free to employees for use on your home computers (as long as you are employed by the College).
