In addition to the 'core' University (i.e. its Schools, Faculties and Departments), the following non-University institutions have chosen to participate in the University's EES Agreement, not otherwise being covered as part of the 'core' University. This allows them to include members of their staff (their matriculated students already qualify, being members of the 'core' University).

Which staff from these institutions qualify for free software?

The institutions below have purchased a set number of EES licences for their staff, and allocate these at their discretion. Queries about allocation should be addressed to your local IT staff.
