Upgrades to Labs and Desktops for Office 2016 and Windows 10

ITS will upgrade the labs and classroom computers, including podium systems, to Office 2016 and Windows 10 ahead of the 2018 academic year.

Why

To better support the annual upgrades to software and hardware because new hardware no longer supports Windows 7. Moving to Office 2016 allows for expansion of Office 365 features for us to utilize in the future.

Impact

  • All public labs and classroom podium images will be upgraded to Office 2016 and Windows 10
  • Terminal Servers will include Office 2016
  • Only Office 2016 will be deployed overnight on 7/10 to all employee Windows systems. Office 2016 for Mac is available for self-installation
  • All employee systems will remain on their current Operating System until replacement of equipment
