Windows 10 upgrade for students

Posted by rmt22 at Jun 08, 2017 12:23 PM |
Windows 10 will be installed on all University PCs for students in time for the start of the 2017/8 academic year.

Currently the University provides Windows 7 on all University PCs which is where you login, run programs and access your files. If you’re a Windows user at home, you may well have been using Windows 10 for a while.

It’s now important we update student PCs to a more modern operating system, which also provides many improvements and features, additional security and ensure we remain supported.

Office 2016

At the same time as student PCs are upgraded to Windows 10, Office 2016 will also be installed on University PCs, which is the latest suite of Office programs, such as Word, Excel and PowerPoint etc.


Student PCs are due to be upgraded in time for the start of the 2017/8 academic year.
