VMWare Software - how to activate your account

About VMWare Software Subscription

HSSOE has a software subscription with VMWare to bring you software in support of your educational goals. Many students enjoy using VMWare Workstation to effortlessly prepare software testing and programming environments.

Students and faculty may download the following at no cost.
  • VMWare Fusion
  • VMWare Workstation

Other available software include VSphere, vCenter Server Standard, and VMware vCloud Suite Standard, but we recommend using them for education and evaluation in case our subscription is disrupted.
