Free/Discounted Software for Academic Use

Microsoft DreamSpark

DreamSpark is a Microsoft Program that supports technical education by providing access to Microsoft software for learning, teaching and research purposes.
DreamSpark is simple: it's all about giving students Microsoft professional-level developer and designer tools at no cost so that students can chase their dreams and create the next big breakthrough in technology - or just get a head start on their career.

This program is offered to all students in the School of Computing enrolled in at least one CS/SWE/CIS/CYB prefixed course. Note that it is only available during the term the course is actually being taught. E.g. If you enroll for a fall class when registration opens in April, you will not have access until the class actually starts.
