SPSS for Home Use

The University's new licensing agreement with IBM includes SPSS software for home use, meaning that you can download and install it on personally owned computers.

1. To download SPSS, visit the SPSS 26 for Roosevelt Students Page.   

2. Under the Visitors section, click the View Shared Files button

3. Double-click the folder that corresponds to your computer’s operating system. Windows users should check the computer properties to determine whether the 32-bit or 64-bit versions are appropriate.

4. The license key you will need to complete the installation is in a file within each folder. Download that and enter the key when prompted. This key is valid until Dec. 31, 2021.

Support is only available online. IBM offers a support forum 

Also, because this is a widely used product, many support and usage questions can be answered via Web searching.
