How do I request software to be installed in a classroom or computer lab?
Many instructors have found it useful to have software and data files installed on our network servers for their students to use. The Academic Computing and Communications Center will work with faculty and departments to make such arrangements.
Software Installation request deadlines
- For Fall Semester 2019, the software installation request submission timeframe ends July 19, 2019
- For Spring Semester 2020, the software installation request submission timeframe ends November 15th, 2019
- For Summer Session 1 2020 (4-week) and Summer Session 2 2020 (8-week), the software installation request submission timeframe ends March 16th, 2020
After reviewing What software is available in the classrooms and computer labs? , you must submit your software installation request for any other software before the deadline and provide all the required information.
- software installation request form
- proof of purchase/licenses
- media and software installation instructions
If you need software installed in a computer lab or classroom for a one-time purpose (for example, for a 2 day seminar), then the software and request should be submitted no less than 4 weeks prior to the first lab reservation for that class. The software will be removed once the event is over.
An email will be sent to you once the software is installed; you must then test the software to ensure everything is working as expected for class. Support for the software is the responsibility of the instructor or department who requested that the software be installed. Proof of purchase and/or license must be provided for as many copies as will be needed for the students in the class. We cannot install software without appropriate proof of license(s).
Although the ACCC will make a reasonable effort to get all software packages to work, we can not guarantee that they will. Some packages may not function because of the network or computer lab/classroom setup. The ACCC can not be held responsible for software that does not work by class time.
Please note that these rules also apply to software brought to install locally on the lab/classroom machines by the instructors themselves.
At the end of a semester, all class files and software will be removed. Software must be requested every semester.
