The students use university-owned computers all over campus. As Murray 
Eisenberg discussed in another reply to this thread, the students 
themselves cannot install packages on those computers, and it's really 
not practical to try to get add-on packages installed everywhere. (I 
wouldn't even know who to go to for some computer labs, or even know 
where all the labs are.)
