We strive to use a variety of tools which are either free to use or free for students, so that students can work as easily from home as in the Ludology Studios. There are several categories of software we use, detailed here with links to download the software. Where the industry-standard software is not free to use, we have recommended good alternatives which are.

UEL now provides each of their students with an Office 365 account - each student gets 1TB of cloud storage on OneDrive and up to 5 installs of Microsoft Office for free.
