Microsoft Imagine

The University of Borås has signed a deal with Microsoft, giving students and teaching staff at the University of Borås full access to Microsoft’s development platform for education and research needs. The purpose is to evaluate and understand IT technology.

Through Microsoft Imagine, formerly known as Dreamspark, students and teaching staff get access to Microsoft’s development platform for studying and research needs, for instance Windows operating system. The Microsoft Office- suite is not available to download from Microsoft Imagine.

You may only install software on one computer. You have access to Microsoft Imagine while you are an active student or are employed at the University of Borås. You have the right to use the installed software after finishing your studies and employment but cannot download or ask for new license keys.

You may, through Microsoft Imagine, download the software and burn your own CD. If you do so on university computers, save to C:\temp and burn the software immediately. The temp folder will be cleared as you log out from the computer. If an activation key is needed, you will get it through email. You may only install the software once with that key.
