Software Download & Licensing Instructions

  1. Download ArcGIS Pro software from Brandeis On the Hub. Contact the Tech Help Desk if you are a Mac user or require help with the installation process. (ArcGIS Pro is Windows-only, so Mac users will need to install VMWare Fusion in order to run ArcGIS Pro).
  2. Sign into Brandeis ArcGIS Online account to activate your ArcGIS Pro license. Once you've signed in, you will be auto-licensed for ArcGIS Pro Advanced and multiple ArcGIS Pro extensions.

Process

  1. Open ArcGIS Pro. Click Sign-in to sign into your account.
  2. Select the Your ArcGIS organization's URL sign-in option and then type brandeis into the text box to sign into ArcGIS Pro. Click Continue.
  3. You will be redirected to the Brandeis login page where you will be able to sign into the software using your Brandeis username and password.

ArcGIS on Macs

ArcGIS desktop software is designed to run in Windows. We recommend that Mac users use Amazon AppStream to access ArcGIS Pro. (Instructions for requesting an AppStream account are listed earlier on this page). 

ArcGIS Pro in the Library

ArcGIS Pro is installed on the desktop PCs in the Goldfarb 230 classroom and the Digital Scholarship Lab (Goldfarb Library, Mezzanine Level). Goldfarb 230 is an open lab and is available for use whenever classes aren't scheduled in the room. 

Brandeis Library's Digital Scholarship Lab provides in-person and remote access to current Brandeis community members. The Digital Scholarship Lab is intended for academic use only and users must attend a Digital Scholarship Lab training before gaining access to the lab.

ArcGIS Pro is also available on our library's Mac computers if you have an Amazon AppStream account (free to current Brandeis students / faculty / staff). We highly recommend requesting an AppStream account if you don't have a PC computer with the appropriate specs to run ArcGIS Pro.

Sign out on Public Computers

Make sure you sign out of ArcGIS Pro once you are finished using the software to ensure that other users don't have accidental access to your ArcGIS account.
