Software Services manage several deals for software used at UoE on campus and at home.

The Software Services team have a number of software site licenses and bulk purchase schemes they manage on behalf of the University.  We facilitate the distribution of software and codes, sometimes recouping costs at a college, school or individual level, within the terms and conditions of the license agreements.

Software prices and availability may change without notice. Site license deals and special purchase deals often depend on sufficient demand within the University and the academic community as a whole, therefore the discounted prices available through these schemes cannot be guaranteed to be available indefinitely.

It is up to the individual to choose software that meets their requirements. IS is not responsible for errors or lack of functionality in externally-produced software.

The provision under a special deal or site license does not necessarily imply support and/or endorsement by IS.
