EWS Labs, EWS Software Request Policy

The EWS Lab Workstations have a wide variety of software installed; however, we realize that some courses may require additional software to be made available to students. Engineering IT can install additional software to the EWS labs if necessary.

Instructors and TAs that are responsible for a course may request software be installed at http://go.illinois.edu/EWSSoftware. This request form will capture all of the information that EWS staff need to complete the installation. Software requests must be tied to an academic course with an assigned CRN. EWS Labs are an instructional resource; due to the terms of our software license contracts and instructional funding for EWS resources, EWS computers may not be used for research. The instructor is also responsible for purchasing the appropriate software licenses, if applicable.

Please keep in mind that EWS staff will need time to automate mass deployment of software packages within the EWS environment. Therefore, software requests may take up to two weeks to process; we encourage you to submit your requests early. We also recommend testing the software prior to using it in class to ensure that it is working as expected.

Students requiring software for their courses should contact their instructor or TA to make the request on behalf of the course.
