UBC IT has negotiated a campus site license agreement with Oracle Corporation for the following software products:
- Oracle Enterprise Edition Database
- Tuning Pack
The software and full Oracle support is available at no charge to UBC administrative and academic departments for administrative, research, and community service use.
As part of the Oracle Campus Wide Licensing Agreement, UBC teaching departments may apply for free to participate in the Oracle Academic Initiative and/or the Oracle Workforce Development programs. These programs provide support for the use of Oracle in both degree and non-degree based teaching.

Oracle software is available for download from the Oracle website.
Note that, although there are many products available on the Oracle website, UBC is only licensed for Production Use of the above three products. Please review any license terms and conditions for any product you obtain from Oracle as additional licensing costs may be required.
Obtaining Oracle Support
