Software Services

The Software Services Team manage several deals for software widely used at the University.

We are a small team who administer several site licenses and bulk purchase deals. 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 licenses. Please note, we are unable to recommend specific software.

Help and Support for Software

Please contact IS Helpline for installation and software help in the first instance.




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.
