Recommended Windows operating systems at IU
Windows 8.x and Windows 7 are the preferred Windows operating systems at IU, though Vista with Service Pack 2 is compatible with most services.
For security reasons, the Indiana University network is not compatible with Windows 95, 98, 98SE, or Me.
New Windows computers may be equipped with either Windows 8.x or Windows 7. If your computer is unable to run at least Windows 7, UITS highly recommends upgrading or replacing it.
Note: Use Get Connected to register Windows 8.x, 7, Vista, and Mac OS X 10.7 and later computers to use the Indiana University network. Computers running earlier versions of Mac OS X or Windows must be manually registered. To register mobile devices or Linux computers, navigate to https://dhcp.iu.edu/ and follow the prompts. To learn about registering game consoles, see What is IU DeviceNet? For help, contact your campus Support Center.
