    Windows 8

Windows 8 is the latest Microsoft operating system and has a brand new interface for end users.  The new interface is designed to make Windows 8 a seamless experience across Windows 8 Smartphones, Tablets and Desktops. Improvements are geared towards personal rather than business use.  As there are no significant performance benefits for business users, Information Technology does not plan to deploy Windows 8 on college owned computers at this time.  

Personally owned computers running Windows 8 can connect to the LC Wireless and Residence Hall wired network using SafeConnect.  If you work from home, our enterprise applications may not work with Windows 8.
