Why?

To prepare for the coming academic year, WPI IT reimages all public computers to update the OS and applications to the latest available, or requested, versions.

Impact

Public machines will be unavailable and may experience prompted and unprompted reboots.

Benefits

Update to the latest Windows 10 OS: 1809 Provides fresh Operating System for new software installations to take place

Details

Machines undergoing a reimage will be a completely fresh Windows 10 device. All locally saved data will be wiped from machines. Applications will be deployed to each lab machine through the start of A Term.

Please review the Software Catalog to determine Software Availability by the start of A Term. If an application is missing from the software catalog that you need to teach your course, please reach out to ITS as soon as possible.
