Overview

Download Software from Software Center (Windows) or Self Service (Mac OS)

University owned computers that are managed have the ability to download available titles from the Software Center or Self Service depending on the Operating System and if the department support. Both options allow you to install software with a click rather than needing to find the software, download it, enter administrator access, and install it.

Your device's eligibility are based on your department's management settings. Titles will vary depending on your department, licensing and other variables.
