Software | University of Portland


Software Available for Download

The University of Portland offers Microsoft Office applications, including the Teams App, Anti-virus software, and Read and Write Gold to all students, staff and faculty.

This software can be downloaded through our Software Download Center accessible via our Tech Support Portal and is available for both PC and Mac. 

Staff and Faculty

If you need software for your office computer, please call the help desk at extension x7000.

Classroom and lab computers are configured and installed with software during the twice-yearly "Call for Software" period (ahead of the Spring and Fall semesters).  These periods are announced to the campus and provide an opportunity for faculty to submit their requests for particular software packages.  If the University does not already have a license for the software, faculty will need to work with their School to identify funds for purchasing the requested software licenses.

Faculty are encouraged to contact the help desk (x7000) to inquire about installed software on classroom or lab machines.

Software Purchase Policy

All software purchases must be made in coordination with Information Services per the IS Technology Purchasing Policy. Funding of new software often is the responsibility of the department making the request and as such must have funding and approval from the department budget manager.

Information Services works in conjunction with the Accessible Education Services to provide technology solutions for students with accommodations. University of Portland provides on-campus computers with assistive technology software. For more information, see the Accessible Technology page.
