How do I request software to be installed in a classroom or computer lab?

ACCC Computer Lab Reservation Improvements

The process of reserving instructional space on campus is being improved. The scheduling of ACCC teaching computer labs will be transferred to the Office of Classroom Scheduling (OCS) starting with the Spring 2015 semester. The OCS begins their scheduling of Spring 2015 classes in late July 2014, so please see this page for details on the improved process.

Lab Reservation and Software Installation request deadlines

  • For Fall Semester 2014, the submission timeframe is from May 26th, 2014 to July 3rd, 2014.
  • For Spring Semester 2015, the software installation request submission timeframe ends October 10th, 2014.
  • For Summer Session 1 2015 (4-week) and Summer Session 2 2015 (8-week), the software installation request submission timeframe ends March 6th, 2015.
  • For Fall Semester 2015, the software installation request submission timeframe ends June 12, 2015.

Many instructors have found it useful to have software and data files installed on our network servers for their students to use. The Academic Computing and Communications Center will work with faculty and departments to make such arrangements.

You must submit the software installation request before the deadline and provide all the required information: 

If you need software installed in a computer lab or classroom for a one-time purpose (for example, for a 2 day seminar), then the software and request should be submitted no less than 4 weeks prior to the first lab reservation for that class. The software will be removed once the event is over.

An email will be sent to you once the software is installed; you must then test the software to ensure everything is working as expected for class. Support for the software is the responsibility of the instructor or department who requested that the software be installed. Proof of purchase and/or license must be provided for as many copies as will be needed for the students in the class. We cannot install software without appropriate proof of license(s).

Although the ACCC will make a reasonable effort to get all software packages to work, we can not guarantee that they will. Some packages may not function because of the network or computer lab/classroom setup. The ACCC can not be held responsible for software that does not work by class time.

Please note that these rules also apply to software brought to install locally on the lab/classroom machines by the instructors themselves.

At the end of a semester, all class files and software will be removed.  Software must be requested every semester.
