All students undertaking modules that are currently using Virtual Machines are entitled to access VMware software tools as part of the VMware Academic Program. From there you can download any one of the software titles for free and use them for non commercial purposes. The free Licenses available to program members are 365-day evaluation licenses that require a one-time download.
All students will receive and email in the first few weeks of the semester inviting them to join up. If you don’t receive the email or can’t find it, pay a visit to the System Administrators in room N425. Alternatively email firstname.lastname@example.org with your matriculation number and requesting access to VMAP. Access will be set up and details emailed to your email address. Once you have your details you can simply log into the System using your username and password and start browsing/ordering the software available at the following link.
If you have any technical difficulties while downloading the software, please go to the support section in the VMAP website and click on Request Customer Support. This request will come back to the Programme Administrators here in the School of Computing.
