Office Upgrade to Microsoft 365
Starting October 10th, 2023, Microsoft will reduce support for Office 2016 and 2019 apps. While older Office versions may work, they face performance and reliability issues if not updated. University computers with Office 2019, 2016, or older will be upgraded, beginning October 6th, following Microsoft's recommendation. ITS strongly encourages you to upgrade to the latest version of Office -Microsoft 365- prior to the mandatory deployment, as it allows you to perform the installation at your personal convenience.
On Tuesday, August 22nd, we will upgrade our WebCheckout system used for equipment loan and other department's resource management. This system will be cloud-hosted and enable new features, such as ease of Microsoft Single Sign-On (SSO) and an updated patron portal experience.
