How do I access SPSS Statistics?



Staff on Deakin managed computers can install SPSS Statistics from the Software Center (PC) or Self Service (Mac). If the computer is going to be disconnected from the Deakin network but SPSS Statistics is still required (e.g. when traveling), complete the Licensing SPSS for Off-Campus usage instructions, but only after you have installed SPSS and before you disconnect the computer from the network.

SPSS Statistics is also available to be installed on one privately-owned computer, provided it is used in the primary residence of a staff member. Contact the IT Service Desk to be provided with installation instructions and a license code.




Apps and Desktops Anywhere (ADA) gives all Deakin students access to various computer lab software via the cloud. This allows for access to the software on any internet-connected device, on or off-campus.

You can log in to ADA using your Deakin username and password at If you are using an iPad, iPhone or Android device, you can log in by downloading the VMware Horizon Client app.

Installation instructions

To open and save data sets using SPSS in Apps and Desktops Anywhere, use the Sharing options in VMware Horizon Client. This makes designated folders on your computer available as network drives within SPSS (and Apps and Desktops Anywhere).



The licensing agreement with IBM excludes the provision of licenses to students enrolled on-campus. However, SPSS is available on all Windows lab computers located on campus.
