Gaussian is a licensed program. The license held by HPCVL is limited to the HPCVL-operated computers at Queen's University in Kingston, Ontario. That means that any user of HPCVL can use the program, whether they are located at Queen's or not.

HPCVL requires users of Gaussian to sign a statement in which they state that they are informed about the terms of the license to be included in the Gaussian user group named g98.
