Software Downloads

Software for College-owned computers

Please call x7440 or email for information about software on your office or college-owned computer (including grant or college-funded machines off-campus). For information about downloading software directly through Software Center (Adobe Creative Suite, etc.), see documentation for Windows machines or documentation for Mac machines. Contact the Help Desk about acquiring software that is not available through Software Center or the standard configuration. Software from the public lab configurations may be available for download to your college-owned computer.

Software for personally-owned computers (Non-College)

The software below is available for personally-owned computers as per the terms listed by our pages or those of the manufacturer.  The College does not fully support this software on non-college computers, although basic installation assistance may be available for College-licensed products.  Free products are suggested based on the experience of our Staff and other users, and are not supported solutions.

If you need software for your College computer, please contact the Help Desk for assistance as some of the products listed below may conflict with packages already installed on your College computer, or the licenses available here may not be applicable.
