What is the Deakin Software Store?

The Deakin Software Store helps you access limited-user software for your Deakin PC. It is available for all Deakin-managed Windows workstations.

The Software Store works in conjunction with your existing Software Center. The Software Center shows free and site-licensed University applications that are pre-assigned to you, as well as software that is already installed on your PC.

To make use of Deakin's limited-user software, staff can go to the Software Store to search for and request access to software not already available in your Software Center, or to request new titles.

To visit the Software Store, use the "Deakin Software Store" icon in your Start menu, or go to:
