UITS

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. UITS does not support previous operating systems.

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 computers running Windows 8.x, 7, or Vista with Service Pack 2. Use the IU DHCP page (navigate to https://dhcp.iu.edu/ and follow the on-screen prompts) to register computers running Mac OS X, most Linux computers, smartphones, tablets, e-readers, and gaming consoles. Contact your campus Support Center to register a personal computer running an earlier version of Windows or an Internet-capable television device. Computers running outdated operating systems and other devices that do not meet IU's security standards cannot be registered. For more, see How do I register my computer or networked device on the IU network?
