Applications

Software helping us work and study smarter and speedier.

‌Manchester Met's students and staff use hundreds of IT applications.

Software locations 

We have looked across campus and compiled a list of available software on Student PCs by location. See below a list of available software by location across campus.

Based on student feedback, we know that you want cross-platform functionality and quick access to applications regardless of location or device. Unfortunately, our current provision for applications access does not deliver on all of these requirements so we are investigating other options. We will provide more information in due course to confirm the next steps for applications access at Manchester Met. For the time being, please use the start menu to access your apps. 

If you had used Fusion 360 through AppsAnywhere, this piece of software will be installed in the below locations (further to Print City) for use from 1 March (when AppsAnywhere ceases to be available). 

  • All Saints Library 5th Floor  

  • Chatham 103  

  • Chatham 311
