Wondering what software is supported at Mount Holyoke? We have a core set of software titles that are installed/available on College-owned computers and are supported at the Technology Help Desk.

LITS assesses, evaluates, and chooses software to meet the needs of the campus community, taking into consideration each product's features, compatibility, price, reliability, upgrade path and vendor support.

Departments and faculty/staff who want to use software not listed on this page on College-owned machines must talk with LITS prior to purchase. Please submit the software purchasing request form and LITS staff will be in touch with you to discuss your needs.
