Standard Workstations

OCIO has designed computer standards to meet the needs of our Managed IT Services (MITS) partners. These options are cost-effective for the university, easily supported and allow the majority of university employees to successfully and efficiently perform their daily job duties.

We update the standards below at least annually. We consider exceptions on a case-by-case basis (e.g. control systems for expensive instruments that cannot be upgraded). The following are standard workstation configurations available to OCIO Desktop Support covered areas, as of December 2020.    

Operating Systems: 

  • Windows 10 is the current OCIO Windows standard.
  • Apple MacOS Mojave (10.15) and MacOS High Sierra (10.14) are currently supported by the OCIO.  
  • We do not support older operating systems per Information Security Control Requirements 0F1.
