​Welcome to the software download centre for Cardiff Metropolitan University.  Below is a list of software which can be downloaded to your personal machine for use while you are a student at the university.  In addition to the University software, there are links to external sites that contain useful software tools and applications.

Items of software that can be downloaded through the University will require authentication using your Student ID and password.  Files that are downloaded in .zip format will include the installation files, any required service packs, full installation details and the required serial/activation codes as required.
