Software Available in Classrooms and Computer Labs

Software available in NDSU public computer labs are listed below. Most programs are available in all computer labs, while some are available only in limited computer labs.

The number of license copies available for each software is also listed (e.g., if there are only 25 copies of Adobe InDesign CS6, and they are all in use at the same time, the 26th person trying to use the software will receive an error message indicating "All Licenses in Use. Please Wait or Try Again Later.").

To request installation of class-related software in the computer labs, please fill out the Software Installation Request Form.
