Microsoft Windows 11

Updated 5 October, 2021

University Systems has a responsibility to provide secure and reliable technology to our community and as such keeps up with the ever-changing technology environment. This includes the deployment of additional technologies and supporting our community to work and learn remotely, while also adapting to changes such as the introduction of new technologies that are not immediately compatible with our environment.


Microsoft released a new operating system, Windows 11, on October 5, 2021.

Until a more thorough test and review of the release version of Windows 11 can be performed to ensure compatibility with UVic specific applications and services, University Systems does not recommend upgrading to Windows 11 at this time.


We will update this bulletin as we test Windows 11 with applications and services specific to the UVic computing environment.
