Software Available in Clusters

Please see the tables below for software available in the NDSU public computer clusters. Most programs are available in all clusters; the table also provides notes on software that is available only in limited clusters. The copies column refers to the number of licences that are available in the clusters; for example, there are only 25 copies of Adobe InDesign CS4, and if they are all in use at the same time, the twenty-sixth person trying to use it would receive an error message saying, "All Licenses in Use. Please Wait or Try Again Later."

If you have any class-related software that you need installed, please fill out the Software Installation Request Form.
