Computers and Multimedia Equipment

The VPTL Learning Environments group provides computers for use by Stanford students, faculty, and staff members. Please see our section Computers and Software Available to learn about the types of computers that are available, the kind of software that is installed on them, and the locations around campus where you can use them. Multimedia equipment is available in the Tech Desk at Lathrop Library and the Lathrop Media Studio

In addition, VPTL manages Printing Resources throughout campus, including 3-D printers in create:space, a collaborative maker space, open to the Stanford community


If you wish to purchase or access software for campus use, please see the Software at Stanford site. For most items, you’ll find a link that takes you directly to a product page or a download site. Currently, most of the software listed on this site is provided by Information Technology Services, Stanford University Libraries, Stanford SmartMart, and the Stanford Bookstore. Learn more

If you can’t find information about the software you need, or if you are a campus provider of software for general use and would like your products to be added to this site, please contact the staff of the IT Services Software Licensing office.
