Pomona College owns site licenses for all of the following programs.
Pomona College owns site a license for the Windows operating system. Due to the nature of our license, we can only install Windows on a computer that had a previous legal version installed on it at one time.
Pomona College students who buy a new computer must make sure that it comes with a version of Windows installed or ITS won’t be able to help. Students may come to the Service Desk or call (x18061 or 909-621-8061) for an upgrade. If you aren’t sure whether your hardware can support an upgrade, please send a message to the ITS Service Desk (firstname.lastname@example.org) include the made/model number of your hardware.
Students with Intel-based Macintosh computers who want a dual-boot option with Windows 7 (Apple Boot Camp) can request the installation from ITS. However, you must obtain your own copy of Windows 7 first, which you can get for free from OnTheHub.com after showing them proof of current enrollment.
Note for Faculty & Staff: ITS will not install Windows on personally owned computers.
Microsoft Office Professional (Word, Excel, PowerPoint, etc.)
Pomona owns a site license for Microsoft Office for both PC and Mac.
Microsoft Office Professional is automatically installed on all Pomona College owned computers (Faculty, Staff and lab computers).
