Software for Students

What software and applications are available at UCL?

There are many software applications available to students on campus via the desktop@UCL service.

How do I get software for my own computer?

You can download any software from the software database licensed for home use. Many of these applications are available from your own device via the desktop@UCL Anywhere service.

Before you begin downloading...

Before you get going, there are a few things you need to be aware of:

  • Software versions
    For both consistency and compatibility you should download the software version you use at UCL, rather than the latest one. This applies to both staff and students.
  • Home use
    While home use is permitted under some of our agreements, this does not amount to a personal licence. Use of software is subject to personal educational development, studying and academic research. By using software that UCL has made available for home use, you agree to these terms and conditions.

How do I buy a personal license for an application?

There are many suppliers offering discounted rates for students:

AutoCAD
