How to Activate my GCS Microsoft Software License

Microsoft Windows and Office Activation for Computers outside the ENCS network

Microsoft Software used by the Gina Cody School of Engineering and Computer Science requires activation with a Key Management Service (KMS) host.  By default, KMS activations are valid for 180 days. To remain active, your computer needs to contact the KMS host before the 180 days has expired.

Microsoft products installed on computers using the ENCS network will automatically activate. Only those computers not connected directly to the ENCS network need to be activated. You cannot activate your own personal copies of this software, only Microsoft volume licensing products acquired from the Gina Cody School or Concordia University can be activated.
