Lab and Classroom Software Requests for Fall 2024 are due May 3rd

CTS will be updating all campus lab and classroom teaching station computers over the summer to prepare for the fall 2024 semester. Please check with the Registrar to confirm your computer lab assignments, then use this brief survey to request software for both computer labs and smart classrooms to allow time for installation and testing.

We encourage you to still submit a software request now even if the lab or classroom assignment is not finalized.

The deadline for requests for software installation - whether for free software or for ITAC provided software – or for software being purchased by your department for the fall 2024 semester - is May 3rd. Late survey submissions may be accepted, but priority is given to requests received by the deadline.


All software must meet Accessibility requirements as stated in WCAG 2.0/AA standards, and that you must locate and provide a VPAT from the software vendor.


Existing software will not be automatically included when the computers are refreshed. The standard software installed on PCs and Macs in most campus public computer labs is listed below. You must specifically request the installation of additional software. CTS will notify the original requestor once the installation is completed, and we will ask that you visit the room and test the software to verify that it is working to your satisfaction before classes begin.

PC Lab Standard Software:

  • Windows 10 Enterprise 64-bit
  • Microsoft Office (Word, Excel, Outlook, PowerPoint, Publisher)
  • Browsers: Edge, Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox
  • Adobe Creative Cloud

Mac Lab Standard Software:

  • macOS
  • Microsoft Office (Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook)

  • Browsers: Safari, Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox

Room Change Requests

If you are assigned to teach in a classroom or lab which you have not previously used, we encourage you to schedule an appointment to meet someone from CTS in that room to review the use of equipment in that room in advance of the first day of classes. While most rooms have a standard set of services, they are all unique in some respects, and familiarizing yourself in advance is strongly recommended.
