Engineering Undergraduate/Transfer Orientation: Find Computers, Printers, Software


"Where can I access software?" "Where can I print?" "Where can I find the computer labs on campus?"

All very common questions we get, especially now with the library buildings currently unavailable.

Educational Technology Services maintains the Lab Lookup page where you can find available computer labs and printers.

https://software.ucsd.edu is the best to look for available software.

  • Campus ITS maintains a list of software packages that can be downloaded. Some are free/discounted for students, including Microsoft Office 360, Adobe Creative Cloud, MATLAB, ChemOffice/ChemDraw, Maple, Mathematica, and Solidworks. Others may only be available to faculty and staff. Check the description for each for access information.
     
  • CloudLabs:HorizonView Service allows you to access various software packages (more than what's on the download list). However, access is limited to students enrolled in classes where the instructors have requested support from ITS. To see if you have access, and for what programs, login to https://cloudlabs.ucsd.edu/.
     
  • If you don't see the software that you want listed, email them at https://support.ucsd.edu/its. Other students may also be asking, enough that ITS could look into pricing.
