  • SPSS Free for Faculty

    Currently a yearly license for SPSS is available for free to faculty for teaching and non-commerical, academic research.

  • Microsoft, Adobe, and SPSS for Free or Discounted Rates

    Through Kivuto, faculty and staff can obtain software at discounted rates, or borrow it for free while you are a UB employee.

    The Software for Personal Use program allows faculty and staff to purchase software at significantly reduced prices. This program is a permanent license that you own; it is not tied to your terms of your employment at UB.

    Through the Loaner/Work at Home program, you are borrowing the license from UB. You may install the application on your home computer with the intent to work on UB-related files only. This option provides a temporary license that is valid only while you are employed by UB. You are required to uninstall the application from your computer if/when you leave UB. If you need the installation media, you will purchase it from Kivuto.

    Both programs are administered through UB's distribution partner, Kivuto . Software is provided by download. If you need the installation media you can purchase it on Kivuto's site. Media will be shipped to the mailing address supplied at the time of purchase. Please note that only the CDs required for installation will ship, not the entire shrink-wrap boxed set of media and manuals.

    Please note there are 2 sign in options to Kivuto.  

    • Use single sign on for new accounts.
    • For prior users, you can log in with your UB email address and Kivuto password to view your prior purchases.
