You can install and use additional packages in R Studio by following these instructions:
Additional packages for R can be installed by students to either the default location on the computer or to a location of their choosing. As discussed my recommendation is to have students use a thumb drive with a .RProfile file. In the file it specifies where the libpath points to. They can point the libpath location to the /volumes/thumbdrive and then the students just need to copy the .RProfile file to their local home area each time they go to a new computer in the lab.
