Install Microsoft Lync for the Mac from the UW Network

Introduction

Through the Microsoft Campus Agreement, the University of Wyoming (UW) provides the latest versions of Microsoft Office (for both Windows and Macintosh operating systems) for UW-owned computers. Supported versions of the Microsoft Windows operating system are also provided through this agreement. These specific Microsoft software installations are provided free of charge to departments.

Cooperating agencies may be eligible to purchase software through the UW Microsoft Academic Select License Program. Further information on this program can be found on the UW Select Program Web page (www.uwyo.edu/infotech/services/software/select/), or call 766-3686.

For ease of installation of this software, Information Technology (IT) provides network installation points. These network locations are restricted to UWYO domain accounts, and the Microsoft licenses restrict the installation of these products to UW-owned computers only.
