When software will be made available

Here is the projected timescale of when Microsoft software titles will become available to students and qualifying Institutional staff, under the EES Agreement.

Phased software distribution plan

Now that the legal framework is in place, work can begin on designing and implementing the infrastructure required for users to download software. There are, however, a number of Cambridge-specific complexities to resolve before the full range of services that are included under the Agreement can be made available to all qualifying users.

UIS will be following a phased approach that allows for several critical pieces of enabling technical work and software assurance to be undertaken, while allowing us to give qualified users access to specific software titles as soon as each becomes possible.
