Site Licensed

Software for which the University has a licence

Anti Virus

Special Genetics version of antivirus software for PC. (Please let know if this is broken.) For Macs I prefer Sophos which has a free version for personal use. See also: McAfee Anti-Virus Software on the official UIS site.

Microsoft Cloud Software

Access to Office 365 for staff and students.

Unfortunately not everyone is eligable, depending on their employment contract or studentship. Check if you are by going to your page on lookup and clicking "Groups." If it shows  "Combined staff for the Microsoft Enrolment for Education Solutions" you're in the right group. If not, you're not and it's an HR not IT issue.

If you have ever worked for a site supported by the Clinical School Computing Service (e.g. Zoology or the Sainsbury Lab) you may be covered under their contract. To use the University licence you have to ask the CSCS helpdesk ( to transfer you to the UIS.
