Software for privat use

As a student you may load some software from the distribution service or buy in Webstore.

This page contains information and installation links of those programs which the students can install in their own use and may use during their studentship according to the university licenses. Information about licenses for units and staff could be found in Notio. Read: How to access Notio.

Some of the software that have been listed on this page are chargeable for the student and part of them are free of charge. Usually the licence to use the software ends when the studying ends. The programs are downloaded either from the software distribution service maintained by the IT Administration Services or from a certain webstore. Always read first the information about the software in question.

Software distribution service

The software distribution is a service of the IT Administration Services from where software can be downloaded into own use according to the licence conditions of each software. In the software distribution there also are installation instructions and licencing agreements, they are worthwhile to read carefully before the installing of the software. Use university's user account to log in the software distribution.

Webstores

IT Admininstration Services sell some software to the students within the licensing agreements in the university's webstore. Furthermore, among others, the programs of Microsoft can be bought or some can be loaded without payment from the Kivuto's webstore. There are own links to the Kivuto's webstore for students and for staff. Log in both the university's webstore and the Kivuto's webstore using your user account of the university. According to the user's role in the university, range of products may vary. Link to the page of these webstores: Webstores.

Some software is bought directly in the supplier's own webstore in which you do not need to log in. In these services you can use a campaign code or an installation code which you case-specifically get from software distribution or buy in the webstore.
