Download portal


The download portal of the University of Groningen is intended for making software available to University staff and/or students for those university PCs that cannot access the software through regular channels (e.g. Linux or Mac workstations).
The availability of software on the download portal is subject to the licence conditions of the supplier/manufacturer.


The software available from the download portal falls into one of the following categories:

  • The software may be used at both the University and at home
  • The software may only be used at the University (for instance when accessing a licensing server is required)
  • The software is unavailable due to licence restrictions.

What type of use is allowed can be found in the software description for each application.

The download portal can be accessed using your personnel or student number and password. After these data have been submitted an overview of software available to you is given.

Downloading software is only allowed after you have agreed to the conditions of the University of Groningen software policy, intended to underline the importance of making legal use of software. The University monitors policy and licence compliance and to this end registers every software download via the portal.
