A Registration Form is now required to obtain a license key for NVivo. Please see the Distribution section for details.


NVivo from QSR International analyzes forms of unstructured data, allowing quick integration using bulit-in query and visualization functions.

A detailed description of NVivo can be found on the QSR International website: http://www.qsrinternational.com/products_nvivo.aspx.


NVivo is offered under a limited-count campus site license.  Purdue-owned and personally-owned computers for students, faculty, and staff on the West Lafayette campus only.  Versions are available for the Microsoft Windows and Apple Mac OS X platforms. 

This software must be fully uninstalled from personally owned equipment upon graduation, when association with the University ends, or an individual's status changes resulting in ineligibility.

Current Distributed Version: 11


Purdue's agreement with QSR Internation provides 1-year limited term licenses for NVivo for both Academic and Administrative use.  Renewal of Purdue's agreement with QSR International at the end of this term is dependent on sponsor approval and funding.
