Students, faculty and staff on all three U of I campuses - Urbana-Champaign, Chicago, and Springfield - are eligible to receive significant discounts on over 350 software applications offered by the University of Illinois.
Since its launch in September 2001, WebStore has become the primary software distribution source for the University of Illinois. In 2008, campus software distribution Web sites for the Urbana, Chicago, and Springfield campuses consolidated into one – University of Illinois WebStore – making University site- and volume-license discounted software products available to faculty, staff, and students on all three campuses.
Offering over 350 software titles for purchase or download, WebStore strives to provide the software you need at the lowest possible price. To do this, we negotiate the best prices on site-licensed software and volume purchase contracts and assist in negotiations for departmental licenses and resource-sharing purchases by groups.
In Fiscal Year 2010, WebStore saved University departments, students, faculty, and staff over $14 million dollars—an average savings of $7 for every $1 of product sold.
