How Do I Use Company Portal?

What is Company Portal?

Company Portal is an app that allows IT to deliver and update software applications across campus. It also allows you to install a variety of licensed software, updates, and plug-ins on your own computer without having to contact IT for assistance.

Note: Company Portal is currently only used on a limited number of computers on campus that are part of the Project Nelvana pilot group.
