Windows 7 Student Discounts: Home Premium for $30

windows7upgrade.pngMicrosoft is offering the upgrade version of Windows 7 Home Premium for $30 to students in the United States, discounted from the usual price of $120. Students in the UK can also get the upgrade version of Windows 7 Home Premium or Windows 7 Professional for £30. A license for either Windows XP or Windows Vista is required to use an upgrade version of Windows 7. Those running Windows XP will need to do a clean install of Windows 7 (though there are unofficial guides for upgrading) while those running Vista can upgrade from within the OS and keep all of their files.

To take advantage of the offer in the United States you need a valid .edu e-mail address or another e-mail address issued by one of the universities on this list. You must also be currently enrolled in coursework, proof of which may be required but in my experience was not. The offer is currently active and will last until 3 January 2010. The official site for the offer is located at

In the UK, both Windows 7 Home Premium and Windows 7 Professional are offered for the same price, £30. A valid academic e-mail address ( is required. The offer will be available beginning on either 30 September or 1 October (the webpage is not clear) for “a limited time”, though it is not specified exactly when it will end.
