Why can't I install software on a Deakin lab computer?

Deakin students and staff cannot install software on Deakin lab computers.

eSolutions has placed this restriction on lab computers to assist with malware and virus prevention, and to ensure all computers are the same.

If you need additional software on a Deakin lab computer in a classroom, lecture theatre, the library or a computer lab, speak to your Unit Chair who can apply for it to be installed.

You can also access Deakin course and lab software from home or from anywhere you need to be, using Apps on Demand. The service uses Citrix technology to provide an alternative, cloud-based solution to on-campus computer labs.
