Is a Steam account required for VR?

Do we need a Steam account to use VR and will our Institution need a Steam account for each PC we use VR with?

Steam needs to be installed on every computer you use with VR, however one Steam account can be logged on multiple computers. While using the same account will not allow you to launch the same title from the account's Steam library at the same time, that does not include our simulation software. If you prefer not to create a standard account with Steam, you can also apply for a free Steam Café licence.
