If you require additional software, please send an email to with the software title and purpose (what class it will be used in). CSG will verify the software can be installed and run as a non privileged user account. The requester will then need to verify functionality of the software title once installed.

Please allow at least 2-4 weeks notice for software installation requests.

CSG plans to reload the windows software lab at the end of each semester. Faculty will need to re-request software not in the base software load on a semesterly basis.

Additions to the base software load will be approved by the DEO in coordination with the CSG Director. We are trying to keep the load from growing to hundreds of gigabytes due to the work required to re-install each semester.

Usage Restrictions...

-Remote desktop (RDP) will not be enabled on the Windows 7 computers in the 301 MLH lab. Students will need to come to the lab to use the equipment.

-The software request process below does not apply to software titles on the regular windows Terminal Servers we've been using in the past for some of this functionality.
