End of Support for Windows XP SP3 and Office 2003| March 11, 2014
On April 8, both Microsoft Windows XP and Microsoft Office 2003 will officially reach their end-of-life. At that time, Microsoft will no longer provide any security updates or patches for either Windows XP or Office 2003. The lack of security updates means that University computers may be at risk if they continue to use Windows XP or Office 2003 after April 8.
Because of this, Information Technology Services (ITS) strongly recommends that departments (or individuals) take the following steps for University-owned machines:
• Identify systems running Windows XP or Microsoft Office 2003.
• Contact the ITS Help Desk and request a price quote.
• Replace the XP systems by July 31.
• Upgrade Office 2003 to Office 2010 any time at no charge.
ITS will work with departments over the coming year and make recommendations on how to proceed.
For more information about Windows XP and Office 2003 end of support, visit the website
or contact the ITS Help Desk at 607-777-6420 or via e-mail
and a desktop support analyst will contact you.
