What if the software I need isn't in Self Service?

If the software that you wish to install isn't available via Self Service then email IT Support with installation instructions for the software and we will make it available.

All Apple Macintosh systems are able to install software from the Apple Apps Store if you sign in with your Apple ID account. If you need to purchase software from the Apple Apps Store then contact IT Support.

If you wish to build your own software and libraries then you can in your /Data directory.
