Remove Notre Dame-licensed software from your personal computer

If you follow the above information regarding your work computer, all software will be removed from your machine if you decide to purchase your work computer. As to what software you can install as a retiree, please see this KB article and reference the middle column - Faculty & Staff Personal Purchases.

While you're at Notre Dame, a variety of licensed software is made available to you for academic/employee use. Now that you are retiring from Notre Dame, you need to remove such software from your own computer. Since these programs are licensed only for use by members of the Notre Dame community, you will no longer be eligible to have these programs installed on your computer after you leave. You DO NOT need to uninstall any software which was pre-installed on your personally-owned computer or which you purchased through the Hammes Hub.
