ESET NOD32 AntiVirus Software for Staff and Students
Statistics shows that more and more virus infected emails were sent from staff and students' home PCs. To protect our campus network from virus attack, anti-virus software is made available to our staff and students for home use. Under the licence agreement (valid till 19 Aug 2025), our staff and students could use the ESET NOD32 AntiVirus software at home. Users can download the software with their network account and password to their computer at home.
Each staff member and student is entitled to install the software in one computer during the subscription period. To cater for the needs of online learning and teaching, OCIO now allows users to apply for an additional licence for a second personal computer for ONE year.
