The University of Dundee has an agreement with CHEST (the Combined Higher Education Software Team), also known as EDUSERV, with Microsoft, and with a designated Microsoft Reseller. This enables us to sell individual Microsoft software products at much reduced prices to University departments.
The software covered is a large proportion of all software produced by Microsoft, although it does not cover everything.
Different to the University's Campus Agreements, which are essentially renewable rental agreements, MS Select allows departments to purchase and use software for as long as they wish.
The agreement is administered on the University's behalf by UoD IT. This is unrelated to site licensing, as Microsoft does not sell site licences.
We advise that you firstly check that the software you want is not already licensed under the University's Campus Agreements. This is the most cost effective way of accessing licensed software.
If the software you are looking for is not available under Campus Agreements, check the product list on the CHEST site to find out if it's available that way.
To order software - submit a Purchase Order via Service Desk
Note: We can only order software on receipt of a University Purchase order. We cannot accept cash or sell software to individuals.
An up-to-date list of all software products is available on the CHEST website.
For more details about the Microsoft Select scheme or to place an order please contact Service Desk.
