Hi All

I have found myself running a project at Uni and we need a free version control system for our software project.

Can anyone recommend anywhere that will provide that service to a closed project?

You are going to see a lot of references to CVS and Subversion on the web. Both are free and of good quality. Subversion is newer than CVS and has many useful features, such as tracking history even if you change the file name.
