SAS is multifunctional statistical software for advanced analytics, business intelligence, data management and predictive analytics. SAS is well suited for work with very big datasets.

Where can I use SAS on Campus?

If you want staff on hand to assist you with SAS, visit the Research Applications and Methods Center during our regular hours. If you have a complex problem, please contact us by phone (202-885-3862) or email to set-up an appointment, otherwise, just drop in!

SAS can be accessed in the following campus computer labs:

Virtual Computing Lab
Anderson Computing Cluster
SPA lab

How can I get SAS on my computer?

SAS is available for access by any member of the AU community through AU Apps.

How can I get support using SAS for research or for class?

  • One-on-one assistance (drop-in during regular hours, or schedule an appointment)
  • In-Class Tutorials (standard or custom tailored, request here)

If you have extremely large data sets, SAS can be configured to access the storage space (but not the computing power) of AU’s High Performance Cluster. For more information about this option, contact us at
