Have you recently purchased or received a new computer? Below you will find links to commonly used software at YSE along with videos detailing the installation process:
 

CrashPlan


CrashPlan will backup your computer (and up to 3 others) while you are a student at YSE.  Once the initial backup is completed, it will automatically backup documents that have changed every 15 minutes as long as you have access to the internet.   
   
If you need to restore data backed up by CrashPlan from your previous machine, this video will help you do so:  Restore files
 

VPN - Remote Yale Network Access


The Cisco AnyConnect Secure Mobility Client (aka Cisco VPN client) allows you to connect to Yale network resources from off campus.  Yale network resources could include library e-resources (journal articles,  electronic publications), network servers, or other network devices that can’t be accessed unless you are on campus or connected with the Cisco VPN client.


Printing


You will need to install the PaperCut Client and printers so you can print to any of the public BluePrint printers at YSE and elsewhere on campus.  
 

Applications


Microsoft Office 2013 and 2016 for students is available from OnTheHub for free.  Please keep a record of your installation code once it is provided.  The installation code is only available for 30 days unless you opt to pay a small fee.
We strongly advise you to take a screenshot of the installation code.
 
Other software is available for little to no cost at the Yale Software Library.  Please check the Yale Software Library for any software before you make a software purchase.  The software library includes titles like EndNote, Mathematica, Matlab and Minitab.
