Purchase Technology

Microsoft Office free for current employees and students

Because of our licensing agreement with Microsoft and our Office 365 subscription, we're able to provide the full Microsoft Office suite for PC, Mac, and mobile FREE.


ITS: will monitor the inventory and proactively get in touch with you when it's time to replace your computer according to our recommended lifecycle (every 4.5 years). For more information, see our Computer and Peripheral Lifecycle Procedure.

You're also welcome to contact ITS: to request a new computer ( or 719.389.6449).

Colorado College partners with Dell and Apple for computer purchasing. Because of those partnerships, the College receives discounted prices both for College purchases and when CC staff or students buy personally owned computers from either vendor.
