Software Installation Request

To ensure the most stable classroom and lab computing environments, Information Technology Services requires that faculty and staff request the instructional software desired for the 2017-2018 academic year. This applies to open-access computer labs/classrooms and instructor workstations (i.e.: podium computers, projector computers). These requests must be submitted well before the academic semester begins. To make a software request for the 2017–2018 academic year, complete the Instructional Software Request Form (2017-2018).


  • This year's software request deadline is March 17, 2017. This deadline applies to all software requests for open-access labs and instructor workstations for the following terms: J-Term 2017, Summer 2017, Fall 2017, Spring 2018.
  • Please remember to include all licensing information and links to download software installation files with the software request. All requested software will be installed with the default settings/configurations unless special instructions are provided and outlined on the request form.
  • Software not submitted by the March 17, 2017 deadline will not be included. Be sure to submit your requests on time.
  • IMPORTANT: We are auditing unused software in order to minimize the size of the payload to all computers. Certain areas will not have all of the same software installed and there will be multiple versions of the final image. For example, Computer Science areas will have lots of CS related material, whereas the IC or Cudahy Library will only have Visual Studio but not all of the other Computer Science related applications. It is absolutely crucial that you request the software for specific areas with this in mind. Please do not hesitate to ask questions. All questions and concerns must be directed to dtsupport@luc.edu.
