Postdoctoral fellows to benefit from Microsoft renewal

03 September 2012

UCT's Information and Communication Technology Services department (ICTS) recently completed its annual renewal of the university's Microsoft Campus Agreement - which makes it convenient for UCT individuals to use Microsoft software both at work and at home.

As an addition to the previous agreement, ICTS and Microsoft negotiated a special arrangement for UCT to purchase additional licences for postdoctoral research fellows. This means that these fellows may install and use popular Microsoft products such as Office, Project, and Visio - subject to pre-defined conditions of use.

Permanent staff, joint medical staff, and staff members with a minimum of a T1 six-month employment contract also fall under the arrangement.

To take advantage of the agreement, you'll need to visit the ICTS Front Office on upper campus and produce your UCT ID card. If you'll be taking a Work-at-Home licence, you'll need to pay R35 for the media disc.
