Campus
The School is signed up to the University's Campus agreement. This provides us with certain Microsoft products (Office Professional, Office for Mac and all Windows desktop operating system upgrades) for university owned desktops/laptops of staff and shared/lab machines. Visitors are not covered.

Software available under this agreement is available from the Support Team.

Office 365
All students and staff can download and install Office Pro Plus on up to 5 devices (including mobile devices) from the Office365 portal. For further details see the IS Office365 documentation.
Azure Dev Tools (formerly known as Imagine or DreamSpark)
All students and staff in Informatics can download a variety of Microsoft software under the Azure Dev Tools programme. This software must only be used for teaching and research purposes and not for administrative or infrastructure purposes - for details of eligibility, see the Azure Dev Tools FAQ. In particular, only students and academic staff are permitted to use personal copies.
Home use program/Work at home
