Software

Depending on the software, there may be several ways for you as a student to access it.

Software on LTH's student computers

You can use LTH's student computers in LTH's computer rooms, and you can also connect to and use these student computers remotely. On LTH's student computers, most software used in various courses is pre-installed and ready to use.

Remote access and VPN

Software on your computer via AppsAnywhere

You can use AppsAnywhere, which is Lund University's web portal for software. The software can then be used both on the computer room computers and your own private computer. Unfortunately, AppsAnywhere only works with Windows (not Mac), and only some software is available through AppsAnywhere. Log in to AppsAnywhere to see what software is available. You can read more about AppsAnywhere and how to log in below.

Software locally installed on your own private computer

You can also in some cases install the software locally on your own private computer (in the old usual way). You can read more about this under the respective software below. Please note that we are not normally able to provide support for installations on your own private computer. If you have problems, we recommend the use methods above.

Requests for software

Normally we only install software at the request of teachers or course coordinators. They will find information about this on the page about software installations for teachers.

As a student, you are therefore recommended to contact your teacher with any requests for software.

On Intel-based Macs, you can install Windows and run it using a free software called BootCamp. As a LU student, you can download a free copy of Windows, see higher up in this list.

Bootcamp cannot be used on the new ARM-based Macs. (M1 processor). Soon, however, there will be virtualization software (approx. SEK 1,000) that makes it possible to run Windows on M1 Macs as well.

Regardless of which Mac you plan to run Windows on, you should be aware that in that case it is best to have a highly specified machine. 16 GB internal memory and at least 256 Gig internal disk are recommended.
