IT Services


If you require software to help you with your work or study, there are three services which work together to give you access to various applications.

Software Centre

Available exclusively on University managed staff desktop computers. Install software without needing to contact the IT Support Centre.

  • Software CentreNote: The above link can only be used on University managed staff desktop PCs using Internet Explorer.

Applications website

The Applications website contains information about the software that is available to you from the University.

Electronic Software Delivery System (ESD)

When the Software Centre isn't appropriate, the ESD is a web based software delivery service for staff and students. You can download site licensed software that you are entitled to, free of charge. University staff can also download chargable software with a valid account code.

The ESD system is available to on campus computers, and off campus computers that are connected to the Virtual Private Network (VPN).

The majority of software applications from the ESD are supplied as disk images. These are electronic copies of CDs and DVDs which your computer can install. For further guidance, please see the following user guide:
