The IT Shop
is open to all members and students of ETH to obtain software for which ETH has special licensing conditions.
Using the IT Shop
The ordering process is slow, please be patient. Even for free software it takes several minutes for the mail with the installation instructions to arrive.
License files can be found in the overview of your ordered software in the IT Shop
and are not included in the confirmation mail.

For computers installed and managed by isginf
, the licensing and installation of software is also completely done by us. If you have such a computer, you just contact your IT Coordinator or isginf
and request the software to be installed. If a license is needed, we will get it for
For those who install software on self-managed computers, the shops' URL

When ordering software, that is not for free, there are two pieces of
information you need:
- The fund number to be used for the billing of the software cost.
- The person in your group who deals with the orders and who should get the order notification mail.
Both can be obtained from your ITC
or administrative assistant.
If you have software that you installed yourself, which is still
licensed in IDES, then you do not need to re-license it in the IT Shop
immediately. When you receive the IDES reminder that the software
expires, just get a new license from the IT Shop. IDES will keep running
until there are no active licenses in its database anymore.
Most of the software for students can be used for free. A few products have a small charge that can be paid by credit card.
