Windows 7 is a Microsoft operating system, designed to be run on Windows-compatible computers. An upgrade to this operating system from previous versions of Windows is available to eligible individuals at Columbia University under the terms of a campus-wide license agreement with Microsoft Corporation. This product can be installed on eligible systems used for your Columbia-related work.
Please note that CUIT recommends users install Windows 10, as Microsoft no longer offers mainstream support for Windows 7. Beginning in January 2020, Microsoft will also discontinue extended support for Windows 7, meaning that you will not be able to count on any security or reliability patches.
