Windows 7 Roll-out Plan

The Office of Information Technology has been preparing for Windows 7 implementation for months, and campus is now experiencing the results of those labors.

Windows 7 will be distributed on the new hardware as part of the FY11 Computer Replacement Plan for full-time faculty and staff computers. Anyone scheduled to be upgraded will be contacted by IT. Individuals who were upgraded as part of this plan last year will also be eligible for a Windows 7 upgrade.

Documentation is available on the IT website under the Tech Library section regarding the new features of Windows 7 along with links to online training resources. Click the links to the left for more information.

Microsoft Office 2010 will be included on computers installed with Windows 7.  Computer labs on campus have been upgraded to Office 2010 for both legacy XP and new Windows 7 operating systems, including residence hall labs and other buildings.
