The OUCS Shop provides a distribution service for software covered by licences negotiated on behalf of the whole University. A wide range of software is available at no licence cost or at prices reduced through bulk puchasing agreements. Most software media is held in stock, but some of the less popular packages are copied or ordered on request. Some examples of the software available include:
  • Microsoft applications and operating system upgrades under the Microsoft Campus Agreement such as
    • Vista Enterprise upgrade
    • Office Enterprise 2007
    • Office 2008 for Mac
    • Sharepoint Designer
    • Visual Studio Professional
  • Microsoft products available under the Microsoft Select 6 Agreement
  • Adobe and Corel products
  • Statistics - SPSS, Minitab
  • Fonts -Monotype
  • Web Authoring - Microsoft Sharepoint Designer, Oxygen, Dreamweaver
  • Bibliographic software - EndNote, Reference Manager
The majority of software distributed is licensed to the 'University of Oxford' and so OUCS is required to keep a record of all purchases. All software orders need to be placed and paid for through the Online Shop - please see our How to Order page for more information.
