Your copy of SPSS

IBM SPSS  is installed on all College computers in IT Labs and in the Library.

To download SPSS, access the Notice Board on the Student Portal  for either Windows or Mac.

To know which version, 32bits or 64bits, of SPSS is appropriate for you, click on the Start menu on your computer/laptop and click on Control Panel and then System to see which System type your device is.

Once you have downloaded the software you will need an activation code. You can get an activation code by asking at the  Library Helpdesk. - you will need to sign a form saying you agree to SPSS Terms & Conditions and provide your student number.

The activation code is valid for the year. At the end of the year, you will be emailed another activation code to your GSM email address, if you are still enrolled as a student at GSM.

Installing the program is easy and straightforward however, if you need any help with setting it up on your personal computer, please contact ITS support.
