Oracle Licensing


The University of Texas System has entered into a volume licensing agreement with Oracle Corporation. This agreement provides both site licensing for certain products as well as a blanket order under which other products can be purchased.

Site Licensing

Under this Oracle agreement, site licensing is in place across the entire UT System for the following products:

Annual technical support fees for these system-wide site licensed products will be divided among the UT System component institutions. It is up to each component to determine how these fees will be divided among its users/departments.

In addition, the UT Austin campus is site licensed for Partitioning and Advanced Security Option.

Under this agreement each campus is able to obtain site licensing for individual products not already site licensed. In order to purchase a site license, a campus must purchase licensing for all full-time and part-time students, faculty, and staff. Exact pricing is subject to various factors, but is to be discounted at least 90% off of the Oracle Global Price List.

Departments interested in purchasing products not licensed above are able to do so under this agreement without need to bid pricing to other vendors. Perpetual licenses and the first year of updates and/or product support can be purchased at a discount rate of at least 50% off of the Oracle Global Price List.
