Campus Windows 10 Upgrade

Windows 10

In early July, CaTS began the migration from Windows 7 to Windows 10. The scope of this migration will include:

  • All newly purchased, university-owned Windows computers.
  • Existing university-owned Windows computers.
  • Existing Windows computer labs and classroom instructor stations. More information regarding this update will be sent out shortly.

What is Windows 10?
Windows 10 is the latest operating system released by Microsoft and features cosmetic differences from Windows 7. This transition is necessary due to Microsoft's planned end of support of Windows 7 in January 2020.

How Will This Upgrade Affect Me?

  • Computers purchased after July 1 will come pre-installed with Windows 10.
  • Existing computers will need to be upgraded or replaced by January 2020.
