Public Lab Software

PC Support Services maintains the software image installed in all of the Public Computer Labs. The software image is reviewed prior to the start of each semester to ensure that the software is functioning properly and that the licensing for each application is up to date. The software in the labs is also reinstalled prior to the start of each semester to ensure that the semester starts off with a clean software load.

Academic departments can make a request to have software applications added to the software image loaded onto the desktop computers in the Public Labs.  There is an established set up guidelines for making software installation requests.  Please review the Computer Lab Software Installation Policy for direction on how to go about making a software installation request.
