Obtaining Chemdraw Software

Bowdoin College has entered into an unlimited site license for Chemdraw, for Mac and PC.  This license covers any faculty and staff (on college owned or personal machines) as well as any currently enrolled students.

Chemdraw on Bowdoin computers
Faculty who would like Chemdraw installed on a Bowdoin-owned computer should contact the Help Desk.  Alternatively, an online help ticket may be submitted 24 hours a day.

Chemdraw for Faculty, Staff, and Student personal use
You may request the software from the Cambridgesoft website. You will be asked to enter a valid Bowdoin email address.  You will then fill out a short form and create a username and password.  It is very important that you use your Bowdoin email address (not gmail, etc), as only users with an @bowdoin.edu address will be granted access to the download site. Please read carefully to be sure your are downloading the correct platform (Mac or Windows).

Lost your serial number or username/password?
If you misplace your serial number at anytime, you can look it up by logging in on our website and clicking 'View Serial Numbers & Expiration Dates for Your Downloads' at the Cambridgesoft website.  If you forgot your username and/or password, you can request an email reminding you of them, by filling in your email address in the 'Forgot your User Name or Password?' field at the Cambridgesoft website.
