Microsoft Windows 10 is the current version of the Windows operating system and is shipping on new Windows computers.
Windows 10 on university-owned computers
Many university-owned computers are running Windows 7. Workstations in OIT-managed computer labs and classrooms as well as workstations running the OIT Managed Desktop will be running Windows 7 for the foreseeable future. While the NC State Help Desk has some experience with Windows 10, OIT recommends that departments establish their support plans and implementation strategies before upgrading existing workstations to Windows 10.
Individual colleges, divisions and departments may have recommendations regarding Windows 10. Please check with your local IT support for your unit’s recommendations.
All university-owned computers are licensed for all versions of the Windows OS through the Microsoft Campus Agreement. (Log in with your Unity ID and password to view this page.)
Windows 10 on student-owned computers
New computers purchased by students will usually come with Windows 10 installed. The OIT Walk-in Center and the NC State Help Desk can provide support for Windows 10 as well as other currently-supported versions of Windows on student-owned computers.
If you have any questions, please contact the NC State Help Desk at firstname.lastname@example.org or 919.515.4357 (HELP).
