Plus, as an OU student you can qualify for several discounts on computer hardware and software by following the links in the OU Computing Guide.

OUSA Services Limited (OSL) is the wholly owned, private limited company of the Open University Students Association. Its primary purpose is to provide goods and services to OU students. As well as our range of past exam papers, we offer a wide selection of study aids, practical merchandise and high quality memorabilia.

As we are the only organisation permitted by The Open University to use their coat of arms and logo for commercial purposes, we also aim to offer a service to the whole OU community – students, staff, alumni and their family and friends. Our aim is to offer value for money coupled with an efficient and friendly service.

OSL also makes a major contribution to our student charity OUSET. As well as encouraging our customers to consider a donation to OUSET when purchasing goods and services, profits are covenanted to OUSA which, in turn, donates these to OUSET.
