The Software Distribution Center is where OSU students and employees can go to download Oklahoma State University license software. The software availability depends on the individual’s role with the university. The software is made available through contracts negotiated with major software companies.
The most common software available to most of the OSU community is Microsoft Office 365. Office includes a collection of programs and tools. The Office suite can be downloaded onto individual computers: Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Publisher, Outlook, Access, One Drive – a cloud that lets individuals connect to their files from multiple devices and facilitates working “on the go.”
