Software Applications

All computer labs are connected to the University's campus-wide computer network. Each computer has access to a standard suite of commonly used software and services. Most workstations also provide access to a wide range of teaching software and instructor programs students may need to use for their class work.

Requesting Software Installation (Faculty Only)

To ensure the most stable, open computing environment, Information Technology Services requires that faculty or staff request the installation of teaching software in open-access computer labs well before the beginning of the academic semester when it will be used. To make a software request for software installation on a lab networked machine, complete the Instructional Software Request Form (2016-2017).
