Requesting Software

When requesting software, the general procedure is as follows.

If you are a student you will need to reach out to an appropriate faculty member with a brief narrative of the software needed. If the faculty member then approves (or is the original requestor) of the software they will reach out to the Associate Dean and IT Manager for final approval. Once final approval has been received, depending on the complexity of the software, installation should be completed within 10 working days.

The process for non-free software is largly the same but will need to go through additional steps of approval and take more time. The purchasing process can take more than 5 working days, so please allow for that time as well. Please note if this will come out of a production budget.
