Using CoStar Suite at the premises of a placement employer
Do not use your UWE log-in
The licence terms for CoStar Suite expressly forbid the use of your UWE Bristol login to access CoStar Suite whilst you are working for your placement employer. You can access CoStar Suite from your home, or from UWE Bristol premises, but you must not use any of the information or data gathered from this source (or any other UWE Bristol licensed resource) for the benefit of your employer. You may only use it to support your academic work.
Use your employer's subscription to CoStar
If your employer has their own subscription to CoStar Suite or CoStar Focus you should request that your employer contact the CoStar help desk to arrange access under their own subscription. You can then use your employer's subscription and associated login while you are on their premises and undertaking work for them.
CoStar monitors where users are connecting from and the login credentials being used. Therefore, if you use your UWE Bristol login inappropriately CoStar will detect the infringement of their license terms and withdraw the CoStar service for all UWE Bristol students.
Access from outside the UK
Although CoStar is available to students at partner institutions and distance learners, this is restricted to countries that CoStar would normally operate within. If you find you cannot access CoStar from the country you are in, you will need to use Estates Gazette Interactive (EGi) instead.
