Planned Windows and Mac Upgrades

In order to maintain a safe and secure computing environment at Buffalo State, RITE Services began a campaign last December to upgrade campus computers to the latest supported operating systems. This includes

  • upgrading all PCs currently running Windows 7 or 8.1 to Windows 10,
  • upgrading existing Windows 10 PCs to the latest build, and
  • upgrading all Macs currently running older versions of OS X to OS 10.12 (Sierra).

In December, faculty and staff members were given the opportunity to upgrade their devices at their convenience using the self-service tools available for PCs and Macs. We encourage faculty and staff members to take advantage of this self-service option, which will remain available through the end of March. Please see these step-by-step guides that explain how to upgrade your PC to Windows 10 and your Mac to Sierra.

Beginning the week of March 26, RITE Services will begin scheduling the deployment of the Windows and Mac OS upgrades and will target any computers that have not yet been upgraded. These upgrades will take place on a department-by-department basis (tentative rollout schedule). RITE Services will contact department heads to finalize the schedule.

For more information, please visit the Planned Operating System Upgrades for 2017/2018 page.
