Summary of Microsoft Updates Applied

Information Technology Services regularly applies critical Microsoft updates to campus computers running a Windows operating system, through Windows Software Update Services. Detailed information about patches released and applied to campus computers can be found here. ITS only pushes critical patches, so it is recommended that patches for other Microsoft products be run occasionally so that other important updates can be applied as well. You can find more information here: Windows Updates.

Microsoft releases patches on a monthly basis (the second Tuesday of each month) and ITS approves them for campus installation shortly thereafter. They are first applied to a test group, primarily made up of ITS computers, before being approved for the general campus. If you have a compelling reason to block these updates, you can make a request by submitting the opt-out form.
