Microsoft Imagine (MSDNAA)

The Microsoft Imagine (MSDNAA) program provides Mathematics and Computing Science students access to a range of Microsoft development tools and operating system platforms for academic use. Access is generally set up on a class by class basis, starting shortly after the beginning of term when the class lists have stabilised.

Instructions to access your Microsoft Imagine (MSDNAA) account:

  • Browse to the software center.
  • Click the "sign in" link at the top right of the software center page.
  • If you have logged in before and know your username and password, type it where prompted; otherwise click the "Register" button below the "Sign In" area.
  • You should now be prompted for your name, email address, and a password; after filling this out, click the "Register" button.

Note: If your A-number produces the error message "An account was found with the identifier entered but it has already been registered," this means you have already created an account for your A-number. Click the "Sign In" link and login or use the "Forgot your password?" procedure.

If you continue to have troubles contact Nikita Neveditsin by email at or by phone at (902) 420-5893.
