Central Subscription of SPSS

In the spirit of SMARTER@HKU of improving work efficiency, the campus license of SPSS, the commonly used statistical software suite for research across the University campus, will be subscribed centrally without going through the work-intensive cost-recovery processes between departments, ITS and FEO as we did in the past.  With the new arrangement, departments are no longer required to renew next year’s (2019/2020) license for the use of the software.

For now, any department requiring licenses for their staff and students to use SPSS for academic and research purposes can send in their software requirements by email to itssw@hku.hk. We would then coordinate with them to arrange the code for licenses activation.  To comply with the license requirements, departments using the software should keep a proper record on the code distribution to their users of the software.

The licenses for the use of SPSS are only applicable to current HKU staff and students. At their departure or graduation from the University, they are required to uninstall the software from their personal computers.  

For any questions, please contact Ms. Sarah Li at 3917 6231 or email us at itssw@hku.hk.
