NOTE:  This service will no longer be available after July 14, 2021.  Please make plans to retire your RHEL systems or move to a different service and licensing model.


Red Hat is available by request for use on University-owned devices and is centrally funded through July 14, 2021 via campus site license.  Red Hat should only be requested if you are deploying an application that requires Red Hat for support.  Otherwise, it is recommended that you use CentOS.  Please contact your local IT support person to obtain Red Hat.

After July 14, 2021, this software will no longer be centrally funded.  If you wish to use Red Hat AFTER July 14, 2021, you will be responsible for obtaining a license and maintaining patches and updates, as central patching and updating for RHEL will also be retired at that date.
