MATC does not have a rental program for software, but there are a several ways that you can get/use different software from your home computer:

Office 365 for free

  • All currently enrolled students, faculty, and staff @ MATC can get Office 365 for free to download on their laptop or home computer. 
  • If you have trouble installing it, try the troubleshooting link below, or contact MS Office Help & Training.

Discounted Software

  • Currently enrolled students can purchase Microsoft, Adobe, and other software at substantial discounts from the Wisconsin Integrated Software Catalog (WISC) consortium.
  • All purchases are done online and are shipped to the location you specify.

Log into a VMware Virtual Desktop

  • MATC provides remote access (off-campus) through our VMware View virtual desktop
  • You can connect to different "pools" of virtual machines, from many internet connectable devices.
  • The MATC VDI has some commonly used software including Microsoft Office and the Adobe Creative Suite.
  • See the Virtual Desktop link below for more information.
