Software download information

Software download options

The Online Shop (needs VPN to view from outside the university network) sells software available to university members at discounted rates. In some cases the downloads are free and in others, there is a charge.

Downloads for all University members to their personal machines (Staff and Students)


Nexus365 is available to University members and is the University’s instance of the cloud-based Microsoft Office 365 service. Centrally managed by IT Services, it provides email, calendaring and access to several other Office 365 applications including OneDrive for Business, Teams, Forms, and Delve.

If you have a Nexus365 email account, you will automatically have access to the other Nexus365 tools available within the University.
IT Services will monitor new apps being introduced by Microsoft as part of Office 365 and decide whether they should be made available as part of the Nexus365 service.

Downloads for staff & students

  • Adobe Products

    University staff are entitled to some Adobe products at discounted prices

  • Students are able to buy Windows from OnTheHub. Transactions are entirely between you and Kivuto (trading as OnTheHub), so all requests for help with purchasing, downloading and installing need to go to or toll-free in the UK at 0800 098 84.

  • Staff purchases for Windows: Microsoft has changed the provisioning to their consumer portal. We are testing it and writing guidance for its use and will publish it as soon as testing is complete.

  • ITSS may also purchase discounted subscriptions for staff for Adobe Creative Cloud products from the Online Shop (requires VPN).
