Labs

Software Requests

ITS provides commonly used software in the lab images. Faculty can request specialty software to be added to the lab image. These requests should be received by ITS by June 1 for deployment for the Fall semester and by November 15 for deployment for the Spring semester. Dates and details for these requests are also announced in Intercom. Software requests for the Spring semester should be limited as there are only a couple of weeks available in January to update the lab images. 

Departments are responsible for purchasing specialty software and the appropriate number of licenses. Depending on the licensing technology, ITS may either make the software available in all labs or limit it to specific labs.
