Software Request Form

What we need

Before any request can be considered, we need the following:

  1. The software install files and installation instructions, including any required options or preferences.
  2. A copy of the Proof of Ownership (purchase order, receipt, etc.).
  3. A copy of the License Agreement.
  4. Instructions on how to launch the software and check basic functionality to validate installation prior to release.

How long does it take?

Once these materials have been received and the license and materials checked, the software will be placed into the software installation queue.

Software installation requests can be submitted at any time. However, a two-week lead time is strongly encouraged. Requests are processed in the order they are received and we cannot guarantee that the software will be available two weeks after your request is submitted, especially during the first few weeks of the semester.

Where is the software installed?

It will be installed in the Learning Spaces environment. By default the platform or operating system for software to be installed on is Windows and Software Remote. Software Remote provides free access to software from any computer with an internet connection and web browser.

Software can be made available in all Purdue IT computer labs, or be restricted by specific labs, as allowed by the license agreement. Purdue IT will meter the software to ensure license integrity, but is not responsible for how the software is used and does not provide training.

Need help?

If you have questions about installing software for your course, please submit a request via the Purdue IT Service Portal.
