What software is available for students?


As a student of the collegiate community, you can take advantage of free and discounted products, services and other resources. These resources are available through the University of Idaho as well as through organizations and companies outside of the university.

 The list of services below is in no way comprehensive and we recommend asking service providers if they have a student discount as it can save you a significant amount of money.
