What Is It?

WebStore is the primary software distribution source for the University of Illinois. WebStore provides volume-license discounted software products available to students, faculty, and staff at UIC and the other two universities within the University of Illinois System. Learn more at the WebStore website.


  • Licensed software is distributed directly through the WebStore
  • WebStore strives to provide the software you need at the lowest possible price


  • A valid UIC NetID and affiliation is required in order to purchase software from the WebStore. After placing the software order, you will receive an email confirmation from webstore@illinois.edu. For certain products (for example, SAS statistical software), you will have the option to have the software shipped directly to you.
  • Log in to the WebStore before browsing. After you log in to the store, you will be able to view products that you are eligible to purchase. Otherwise, you may see multiple offers for the same product because the offers may be different between UIUC, UIC, or UIS.
