Microsoft will end extended support for the Windows 7 operating system on January 14, 2020. If you're currently running Windows 7 on any Cornell-owned device, plan to migrate to Windows 10 as soon as possible. If you have a university business need to install Windows 7 specifically, please contact the CU Software Licensing Office.

Data security is a priority, and Cornell policy requires all university-owned computers to keep operating systems up to date. If you have any questions, contact your local technical support provider or email
