VMWare Fusion Setup

In order to run Windows or Linux Applications on your computer if your computer is running neither, the University provides access to the VMware Fusion (macOS) or VMware Workstation (Windows/Linux)

VMWare can be requested. Once approved you will receive an email with installation instructions. And an email from info@itacademy.brightspace.com will be sent to you with instructions to redeem your subscription to get access to the provided VMware products. You will need to register an account there to gain access to VMware licenses.  


To access your license and download go to: https://www.vmware.com/products/fusion.html

In the lower right click "Register To Get Your Key Now"

Go through the registration and confirm it with email (you can use ‘Chico State’ for company and ‘Student’ for position).

Return to the initial link: ​​​​​​​https://www.vmware.com/products/fusion.html

In the lower right click "Use for Free with a Personal Use License"

Sign in with your VMWare account

Go to License & Download Tab to access the license code and download the software.



If you need Windows 10 Education edition it can be downloaded from csuchico.onthehub.com

At the OnTheHub site, you can press the sign in button in the upper right corner, and then login with your Campus credentials.

Once you're logged in, you'll be presented with a list of software that you can download. First pick the Windows 10 Educational edition and add it to your cart.

Continue to checkout.

This will take you to the checkout screen. Take note of the serial number (you can get it later too, but it's easier if you copy it down now). Then download the .iso file for Windows 10 Educational (not pictured).
