Software Requests

Information Technology

Faculty members who would like software installed in labs, classrooms or other locations should submit a request to the Technology Services Center. Faculty may also request upgrades or version changes to existing software.

PC labs and classrooms operate with Windows 10 and Mac labs and classrooms operate with macOS Ventura. Software that is incompatible with these operating systems may not function properly. Faculty members are advised to either purchase a software upgrade or seek out new software.

Requests and questions may be submitted to the Technology Services Center at (401) 341-7777 or


  • June 1 for the fall semester
  • Dec. 20 for the spring semester
  • May 15 for summer sessions

Software requests submitted after the deadline may not be honored. The Technology Services Center will not remove security and protection features for late requests. Please include the URL for any plug-ins or related software for accessing content (such as video and audio) at particular websites.

Software that is installed for the fall semester will also be available for the spring semester. Software must be properly licensed and purchased for installation. Faculty members should test the software well before classroom use to ensure proper performance and to allow time for adjustments.
