- LTS Software Pages - https://software.lehigh.edu, also called LU Install Software or LUIS, are a web repository with information on software packages provided by LTS and related public-domain software. In most cases, the listings there provide links to downloadable installers, and provide details regarding the campus's license for using the software. Access to the applications depends on the licensing for each, which can vary by where it's being accessed from, and by whom. For instance, applications that are only licensed for installation in a particular room or building are restricted so that you will only see the download option if you are in that building.
