Adding new software to Information Commons computers

For security and copyright reasons, staff and students cannot load other programmes and software on to Information Commons computers. If you try to load programmes, you will be blocked.

Software and programmes on the Information Commons computers are reviewed once a year. We are aware that there is a range of additional specialist software that some students would like to access from the Commons and all requests are considered.

If you have any suggestions please contact the IC Helpdesk via email: ichelpdesk@auckland.ac.nz

Other specialised software that you need for University purposes may be available in your faculty computer laboratories. Please contact your faculty or departmental labs for further information.
