WINDOWS 10 IS ON THE WAY

Windows 10 is Microsoft's latest Operating System. Released in 2015, Windows 10 has become the successor to Windows 7 (which ends support in January 14, 2020). In order to offer the students, faculty and staff this latest Microsoft technology, the University has been actively testing and preparing for a rollout of Windows 10 with your help. Below is a schedule detailing the phased implementation that will be occurring University wide starting in summer 2017.

Change of any type can be met with apprehension, so we have created a document that identifies and examines the key points of what to expect when transitioning from Windows 7 to Windows 10. While the basis of the operating system remains the same, many of the visual aspects and functionality have been enhanced. Check out our document that explores and explains the differences between the two.

Availability and Scheduling

Computer labs and smart classrooms will be upgraded starting the week of May 8, and will be scheduled based on availability. If you have a question regarding when a lab or classroom will be upgraded to Windows 10, please contact your LSP and they will be able to provide this information.

Beginning June 2017, Windows 10 will become the recommended operating system for new faculty and staff PC purchases. Faculty and staff can also request to have their current PCs upgraded to Windows 10 at this time.

Starting June 2018, ITS will begin working with colleges and departments to upgrade Windows 7 computers to Windows 10.
