The University currently has Windows 7 deployed as it's standard Operating System (OS), and is on the vast majority of the PCs available for use on campus. Windows 7 is due to go out of support on January 14, 2020. Due to this we are currently trialling Windows 10 on the Ipswich campus and would like to hear your feedback. You can currently trial Windows 10 in the following areas:
- Waterfront Building 3rd Floor - Next to the windows overlooking the WAD
- Library Building 1st Floor - Room L108
The Univeristy has a range of Apple Mac devices across the Ipswich campus. Most of these are located in the Arts Building, where the specialist photography and design labs are located. The majority of the Mac Pros are running macOS High Sierra where as the iMacs are running older operating systems from Yosemite upwards. We are currently looking into costs for a Mac replacement scheme but this is in the early stages of the project.
IT Services cannot help with the installation and maintenance of these programs and they cannot be downloaded on University Campus PCs.
Some courses require specialist software, which may have specific hardware requirements. Due to this, some software is only available in specialist labs or IT suites.
Adobe Creative Cloud is available for general student use in the Library Rooms L106 and L109 (4 x Macs in each room). Adobe CC is also available in Arts specialist labs for course lectures and course specific work.
