Installing and applying for software

Your workplace is equipped with a standard basic software package. In addition, you can also install programmes yourself from the additional software package. If you need software that is not available via the additional or basic software package, you can apply for the software you need.

Install additional software

Every workplace is equipped with a basic software package. In addition, you can install a number of additional software packages yourself, such as alternative fonts.

Windows workplace

Via Software Center

You can find Software Center by clicking on the Windows start button on the bottom left corner and begin typing "Software Center" immediately. 

Mac workplace

Via Managed Software Center

You can find Managed Software Center under Applications or via Spotlight.

Request special software

You may also wish to install software programmes that are not available via (Managed) Software Center. To install such software, you have to send a request via the helpdesk portal. Your application will be assessed by your ICT contact person.



If you have other specific wishes for your digital workplace, you can consider requesting a special workplace. Consult your ICT contact person or ISSC-Helpdesk about the conditions.

Corporate applications

You get access to SAP Self Service and Blackboard when you enter employment. You can request access to the other application via the contact persons. If you have problems logging in, please contact the ISSC-Helpdesk.
