Important Notice - Please read
Microsoft continues to encourage people to move to Windows 10 through pop-up offers for the free upgrade. In light of this offer it is important for you to understand that presently none of the University’s major software vendors have issued a certification for their systems supporting Windows 10.
IS&T is presently performing an analysis of Windows 10 to fully test this operating system as well as its integration to existing University systems.
IS&T strongly recommends that until vendors certify Windows 10 and IS&T has completed its testing, that you do not upgrade any university pc’s or laptops to Windows 10 at this time. IS&T will announce the support of the Windows 10 operating system when it has been fully tested and compliant with all of the university systems.
Your cooperation is appreciated.

Listed below are some of the new or expanded IST services and information regarding changes. For questions about our services, please call the IST help desk X5050 or contact the appropriate person (see contact information).
Mobile Campus is extending loan limits from 5 hours to 48 hours
This is to accommodate students on Monday/Wednesday or Tuesday/Thursday class schedules and is expected to reduce late return fines. Items borrowed on Fridays will not be due back until Monday.
Special scanners are being installed in Student Center and Business labs
These are “face-up” scanners that can scan in color, directly to a USB (thumb) drive or to an e-mail address. Scanning is free and does not deduct from your 8,000 page free print balance.
MacBook Air laptops added to Mobile Campus
For students who prefer Macs to PCs. These are state-of-the-art computers with much longer battery life than PCs and are thinner and lighter than the HP laptops. They will have the Microsoft Office application suite as well as other useful software.
Tablets are Back
Microsoft Surface Pro-4 Tablet computers, weighing less than two pounds, are bringing back tablets to Mobile Campus with Windows 10 operating system, the Microsoft Office application suite, a “real” keyboard, and up to nine hours’ of video playback.
Mobile Campus Satelite
We opened a second Mobile Campus location at the circulation desk of the Library in Rhodes Tower. Laptops and calculators can be borrowed from either location but only the Student Center has tablets to loan.
50 PC's added to Rhodes Tower Library
We had to close our Stillwell Hall lab so we relocated those PCs to the Library Learning Commons (lab) on the first floor of the Library.
Students will be able to print in the General Computer Labs, directly from their smart phones and tablets, through the same free print allocation that has been providing free printing from lab PCs and Mobile Campus laptops. We had to close our Stillwell Hall lab so we relocated those PCs to the Library Learning Commons (lab) on the first floor of the Library.
Stop the presses - we have a new phone directory!
IS&T has upgraded the Universities searchable on-line telephone directory in an effort to improve functionality and reduce costs. Some of the new changes:
- New faculty/staff search capabilities
- Ability to print entire or part of the Faculty/Staff Directory
- New departmental search capabilities
- Your department will no longer need to update the paper copies in the Fall and Spring to reflect employee changes to their office location or phone numbers
- Easy access to request changes to office location or phone number
- Quick links to campus information
- Access using your mobile device
The new website will replace:
- The paper copy of the faculty/staff directory and CD, normally distributed in the fall
- Old website
The new phone directory can be found at: www.csuohio.edu/phone
