NVivo Campus Agreement

The Faculty of Social Science, in conjunction with Western Libraries, the Faculty of Education, the Faculty of Information and Media Studies, the Faculty of Health Sciences, and the Ivey School of Business, has entered into a campus agreement for NVivo 11. The license covers NVivo 11 Starter for Windows, NVivo 11 Pro for Windows, and NVivo for Mac.

How can I access NVivo?

In the Faculty of Social Science, we are installing NVivo 11 on public computers in most Graduate and Undergraduate computer rooms. If you cannot find NVivo on one of these public systems, please contact the administrator of that computer room.

Can I get NVivo on my own computer?

If you are from the Faculty of Education, the Faculty of Information and Media Studies, the Faculty of Health Sciences, or the Ivey School of Business, please contact your local IT staff for information. If you are in the Faculty of Social Science, please see below. If you are not in any of the listed faculties, you can use it on the systems in Western Libraries or have your IT department contact Social Science Technology Services.

Faculty of Social Science

Faculty members can purchase an annual license for their own computers or for University owned equipment for $110 per computer.  Graduate students and Post-doctoral Fellows can purchase a copy for their own personal computers for $40 per computer. Please contact ssts-help@uwo.ca or call extension 82152 if you would like to have it installed. The annual license renewal is in mid-July. Purchases made after mid-January will be charged at 50%.

Note: SSTS or designated staff must complete the installation on your behalf. Consequently, personal equipment must be brought to the University for installation.
