For Students

Microsoft Software

The UNCG Department of Computer Science is affiliated with the Microsoft Azure Dev ToolsAzure Portal Screen Shot for Teaching (formerly known as: Imagine Premium, DreamSpark Premium and MSDNAA) program. Through this program, University students can obtain Microsoft developer tools, platforms, and servers for use in coursework, independent learning, or research. A partial list of available software includes:

  • Visual Studio Enterprise
  • SQL Server Enterprise
  • Windows 10 Education Edition
  • Windows Server 2019
  • Windows Server 2016
  • Visio Professional
  • Project Professional
  • Access Professional
  • $100 in free Azure online credits

Many other software packages are also available. Software can be obtained online at the Azure Dev Tools for Teaching Download Site or through the coordinator listed below.  Sign into the Azure Dev Tools for Teaching Download website with your UNCG email address, then use your current University login credentials to complete the sign in.

Note that the Kuvito OnTheHub Software Store websites that formerly hosted the Microsoft Imagine Premium content are still available for discounts on other non-Microsoft software.   Computer Science, Mathematics & Statistics, and Standard UNCG OnTheHub Software Store websites are maintained separately. They are linked here for convenience.


Students and Faculty also have access to Microsoft Office 365 through the UNCG Portal here:   Students and Faculty can either run the online versions of Microsoft Office or download and install the desktop versions for free.   Microsoft Office 365 uses your UNCG username and password, not linked to your login credentials for the OnTheHub Software Store websites.

More information can be obtained from the web sites linked above, or from the department’s Microsoft Azure Dev Tools for Teaching coordinator:
