When OneIT surveyed students on remote learning and technology in the spring, 20% said they didn’t have access to the software they needed to learn remotely. Now, two new options will allow students access to more software than ever before:

  1. Access specialized software at home: When face-to-face instruction isn’t an option, and your system can’t access the specialized software (e.g., SPSS, SAS, Mathematica) you need, OneIT setup remote access labs so students can connect to a campus lab.
  2. Download University software and unlock exclusive discounts: Microsoft Office, antivirus software, and more are free at Now the site includes deeply discounted software priced exclusively for the UNC Charlotte community. See our top three discounted software picks.
