How to use Pure

Important: Please note as a result of the last major upgrades, the guidance below may not exactly reflect the current Pure interface, and that's why we are currently updating the website. The majority of information should be still valid, but please do contact us at if you have questions.

Access to Pure

All academic staff and PGRs automatically have Pure access (SSO required). Honorary staff can have access to a Pure personal user account on request. Professional Services can also request access if they need to support the use of Pure within a faculty, school or centre. Please, send your requests to the pure-support mailbox above providing your University of Bristol user name.
