There is no charge for use of this service.

Note: GitHub Enterprise (Academic) was decommissioned in June, 2019.

Software development teams use web-based platforms to help them manage version control. While there are free, open-source services available, UI’s professionally-hosted and managed services are more secure, and allow users to authenticate with their HawkID.  

This table lists hosted services that are available to the UI campus community, services scheduled to be discontinued, and any that are being evaluated:
