What happens if I am running a Windows 7 computer after Jan. 14, 2020?

If you are running Windows 7 you are unsupported and out of compliance with campus policy.

What happens next:

  • Feb. 1, 2020 - ISO notifies Windows 7 systems users to disconnect from the campus network
  • Mar. 1, 2020 - ISO blocks Windows 7 devices seen on the campus network

Please note: In the event that a Windows 7 exploit is released before Mar. 1, ISO reserves the right to immediately block any vulnerable device per the Blocking Network Access Policy.


Exceptions are allowed only if the system cannot be upgraded and depending on the data classification level and the amount of data of that type. Learn more about security exceptions at our Exception Process for Windows 7 End of Life (EOL) page.
