Faculty and staff who are hired and paid by DKU may download and install those software programs that Duke “affiliates” are eligible to use, except if:
- The software is limited to use only on the Duke (Durham, NC) campus
- The software is limited to use only in the United States
- The software is specifically prohibited from download or use in China
- The software is limited to use only on Duke-owned computers (note: this excludes computers procured and paid for by DKU)
Please note that many Duke-licensed applications, including Microsoft Office, are not licensed for use by “affiliates” and therefore may not be downloaded from the OIT web site by DKU faculty/staff. However, Symantec Endpoint Protection (antivirus) and Cisco AnyConnect are licensed for use by DKU faculty/staff.
If you are not eligible for a Duke software program that is needed for DKU instruction or university business, please contact DKU IT and request that DKU purchase the software on your behalf.
