Windows

Boston College has a campus agreement to upgrade Windows if you already own a version of Windows (for BC faculty, staff, and students).

Information Technology Services (ITS) highly recommends that you get assistance with upgrading your computer.

  • Students: We can assist students who bring their upgrade CDs and laptops to the Walk-In Help Desk in O'Neill 248. We can also install free upgrades to Windows 7 Enterprise (similar to Windows 7 Professional edition) or Windows Vista Enterprise (similar to Vista Business edition).
  • Faculty and Staff: Talk to your TC about upgrading Windows on your BC-owned computer.
