Software Installation Request

General Information

Aside from acquiring software on a case-by-case basis for more specialized departmental needs, there are two primary methods available to install software on CMU computers:

  • The Personal Computer Downloads site contains links to download SAP clients, Top Hat audience response software, VPN clients, and more
  • Computers running the latest versions of Windows have software available to install via Software Center (click the Start button and type Software Center). Availability varies from department to department.

Click the Request Assistance button for all other requests.


Primarily all current faculty, staff, and student employees.


Generally, there is currently no charge for assistance, but depending on the nature of the request, software and/or licensing costs may apply.
