How do I access SPSS?

UW Tacoma students, staff, and faculty can access SPSS (Statistical Package for Social Sciences) and other software (such as Adobe X, Illustrator, Photoshop, InDesign, etc) anywhere on campus by following these instructions.

Non-students, the public, Alumni, and even SEATTLE STUDENTS do not have access to SPSS on computers at UW Tacoma. The SPSS license at UW Tacoma is only for UW Tacoma students who are physically on campus.

There are no logons we can give away to non-UW Tacoma students which will grant them access to SPSS.
