Effective November 1, 2010, Information Technology Acquisitions and University Computer Support (4Help) will be offering on-site software installation support on the Torgersen Bridge. The purpose of this initiative is to provide on-site technical software support and offer bi-monthly educational seminars to eligible faculty, staff, and students. This center will provide installation assistance to individuals who obtain their software from the Software Distribution office as well as assistance installing Windows on Apple computers. In addition to assistance with software installation, the initiative will provide regularly scheduled tutorial help sessions based on common problems such as backup of data, reformat of a system, virus removal, VT-Wireless, etc.
The Software Assistance and Education Center hours are 10am to 5pm, Monday thru Friday.
Software Distribution will no longer distribute Microsoft Office for both Windows and Macintosh or Windows OS (Windows 7) upgrades to faculty, staff, and graduate students for personal use, once the current supply is exhausted. The change is the result of licensing changes by Microsoft. Participants in the Campus Agreement Program will not be affected.
The University Bookstore will be carrying these software packages and will be happy to assist you with your purchasing needs. If you have questions, please contact Software Distribution at email@example.com.
EndNote X5 is now available for download at network.software.vt.edu.
All incoming undergraduate students are required to purchase a Microsoft Enrollment for Education Solutions Software Bundle. This requirement will ensure that all undergraduate students have access to the latest versions of Office and the operating system. The bundle provides you with upgrades for this software as long as you remain an undergraduate at Virginia Tech. The Undergraduate Software Bundle is available only through the Virginia Tech Student Software Distribution Office located at 3240 Torgersen Hall. For more information see the Requirement FAQs or contact Student Software Sales at firstname.lastname@example.org or 540-231-3969.
