Microsoft for private computers


Private purchase of discounted Microsoft licenses for students and employees

Employees and students also have the possibility to purchase discounted education versions of Microsoft products (software and hardware) in retail or online. To get an idea of the product range taking a look at the regarding  Microsoft-sites might be useful. Moreover, the trend of renting software can also be observed there. For example, Office 365 University can be rented there for 4 years. Please note, that prices stated at Microsoft itself might not necessarily be the discounted ones. So doing a little research prior to purchase might be of use.


Student Advantage Benefit (SAB), Teacher Advantage Benefit (TAB), Windows 10 Education for students

The fact that Kiel University joined the federal contract, called "Bundesvertrag", is one condition for the (almost free of charge) provision of the above mentioned benefits by Microsoft. Provided that the further (also technical) conditions are being fulfilled, the provision of Office for private computers of students and employees of Kiel University is possible. Currently, (state: July 2016) the activation of the above mentioned benefits is being prepared.


Stay tuned! :)
