Windows Education for students

Due to a change of service by Microsoft Corporation in April 2024, Kivuto no longer provides license keys. Therefore, this service is currently unavailable. We are in the process of confirming the availability of subsequent services.


Students at the University of Tokyo can obtain a license to upgrade Windows 10 or Windows 11 to the Education edition. This license is provided as part of the UTokyo Microsoft License.

Scope of use and directions

  • The target is a privately owned PC, and only one PC can be applied.
    • Please note that it cannot be used on PCs owned by the university, etc.
  • You can continue to use the upgraded PC even after you leave the university due to graduation, etc.
    • No uninstallation is required.
  • Only students can use it. Please understand that faculty and staff cannot use it.
  • This is a license for upgrading, not for clean installation. Please be careful.

Procedure for obtaining a license

The license is provided through a service called OnTheHub by Kivuto.

  1. Access the UTokyo page on OnTheHub.
  2. Click the “Sign In” button in the upper right corner.
  3. You will be asked to sign in to your UTokyo Account unless you are already signed in. Please sign in.
  4. Select “Windows 10” or “Windows 11”.
  5. Click “Add to Cart”.
  6. Proceed with the order in the shopping cart. When you complete the order, a product key (alphanumeric code for using the license) will be displayed. Please record and save it yourself.
    • The product key will only be displayed for 30 days after the procedure is completed. Please be aware that it cannot be displayed again after this period.
  7. Follow the procedures in the “If you have a product key” section of the Upgrade Windows Home to Windows Pro page to upgrade.
    • The upgrade procedure to Windows Pro is the same as for Windows Education.

Please note that products other than Windows Education are also available for purchase on OnTheHub, though they are not provided under the university’s contract. If you purchase them, please do so at your discretion and responsibility.


  • Please use the license by the terms of use of the license provided.
  • If you have any questions about obtaining, upgrading, or using the license, please contact Kivuto on OnTheHub.
  • The content provided (such as the type of license and the procedure for obtaining it) may change depending on the service content of Microsoft and Kivuto and the contract content at the University of Tokyo.
