OLD 2023-25 Faculty-Staff Computer Upgrade Project

ITS is working with campus departments to assure computers meet University equipment standards by 2025.

Windows 10 will be end of life in October 2025 when Microsoft will stop providing security updates Nearly half of all university-owned workstations, including those in research labs, classrooms, and conference rooms, will need to be replaced to be in compliance with the Policy for University-Owned Computers.
