Changes to VMWare Academic Program for UW Seattle Campus

As of December 2022, the hosting provider for the VMWare Academic Program software distribution portal (Kivuto) stopped contracting with VMWare to distribute their software. Our former campus agreement, that made these VMWare products available to UW Seattle Campus students, faculty and staff, ended abruptly and with little notice. There is no longer an option for a campus-wide agreement as far as we know.

We are sorry to have to relay this unfortunate change.
