UConn-licensed Software Online

As an alternative to downloading and installing applications directly onto your computer, you can access the select university-licensed software on your devices through UConn AnyWare. Software is streamed to your device on demand, giving you the feeling of a traditional installation without the upkeep and platform restrictions. With the software maintained remotely, you always have access to up-to-date versions, and since it is delivered in a virtual environment, you can run it on a wide-range of platforms and devices.
