Supported Software-University Owned Equipment

Software List-University Owned Equipment

Information Services supports a multitude of different licensed software on University supported machines and devices.  Below you will find a guide to which software we support.

Key

Full Support - Installation and configuration support. We will always endeavour to find a solution, where possible, to any problems that may occur.
Installation Support - Information Services will help with installation / configuration problems, but will not necessarily be able to help with questions on how to use the software.
