SPSS is a statistical and data mining software package that allows you to analyze research data to make smarter decisions, solve problems and improve outcomes.

How to Obtain This Software


Stony Brook students can access SPSS at no charge from any of the TLT-managed SINC Sites on campus and the Virtual SINC Site.

If students are interested in renting their own six or 12-month licenses, they can go to OnTheHub.com for special academic discount options. Academic verification is required, so students must use an @stonybrook.edu email address when creating their OnTheHub.com account. Once their Stony Brook University academic affiliation is confirmed, students may rent and download the license that suits their needs. OnTheHub.com accepts PayPal, Visa, MasterCard and American Express for payment.


SPSS is available at no charge to faculty, staff, and students through the Virtual SINC Site, or by direct download through Softweb
