Whilst you’re venturing around the world on your summer travels, working to fund your next year here in Derby (we have jobs available if you need one) or an incoming student planning your Freshers’ Fortnight experience, your Union of Students have been working on an exciting project to benefit all of you.

We’ve teamed up with IT Services at the University of Derby, who provide a wealth of free resources and services to all 24,000+ students, including:

  • Trend Micro Antivirus software

  • Eduroam WiFi across all sites

  • Microsoft Office 365 for up to five devices.

To celebrate these excellent offerings and raise awareness of all things IT, we’ve put our core values of being vibrant and ambitious first to put a creative spin on the likes of cybersecurity, password protection and more. We want to signpost you where to go to take advantage of all of these fabulous resources to make the most of your time here at Derby.

 

Keep an eye out for the pesky viruses as they may be infiltrating campus over the coming year - close all of your Windows or they might get in. And, if you see them around, take a picture and let IT Services know on Twitter @DerbyUniITS!

We’ve also heard reports that they attempted to hack into Kedleston Road during July, however, three agile IT employees assembled to keep them at bay. In the end, the viruses couldn't hack it. Rumour also has it, that there may have been a camera present that very day (watch this space)…

Check out IT Services' student offers for an Excel-ent comprehensive list on how they can help you during your time at Derby.

And if you have an IT-related problem, then you can request IT support online.

If it’s broken, they’ll fix it.

7:54pm on 15 Oct 19 It would be wonderful if the Microsoft windows 10 operating system was available for free for those of us who require it in order to access our learning needs assistive technology such as dragon. I'm aware that computing students are able to access this for free, perhaps this could be looked at in a case by case basis?
