Nitro PDF is the University of Otago's default PDF application. Nitro can be used on University-owned and personally-owned computers by both staff and students. It was made available to staff from 2 August 2023 via SCCM and JAMF and should automatically appear on all staff computers.

Alternately, installers for Nitro PDF can be found here (log in with your University username and password):

Nitro PDF installers (OneDrive)

These OneDrive Installers are for installation on personal devices. If you have a University-owned device, you need to install Nitro PDF through your Software Centre. See the related article Using the Software Center/Centre for more information about doing this.

Contact AskOtago if you require further assistance.

Once installed, log in to Nitro PDF using your University of Otago email address and password to activate. If you are not prompted to log in when Nitro PDF starts:

  • There is a login button in Windows on the right-hand side of the ribbon at the top of the screen
  • On a macOS computer, go to the Nitro PDF Pro menu, select Account, then log in

Adobe Acrobat will no longer be available for staff to purchase unless a case for it can be justified.
