Windows 7 Extended Security Updates (ESU)

« Back to Software Grid

Windows 7 reached end of life support on January 14, 2020 and devices stopped receiving Windows updates. Extended support is available for these devices in order to continue to receive updates until January 10, 2023. More information on this is available at Microsoft. Devices should be upgraded to Windows 10 as soon as possible or removed / isolated from the network if an upgrade is not possible due to lab equipment or other requirements. This key should be seen as a temporary measure.

Virtual Computer Labs

Virtual Computer Labs are available to faculty, instructors, and Department, Lab, and Center (DLC) IT support providers for deployment as virtual Athena Ubuntu 18.0.4 or Windows 10 machines for an MIT class of up to 100 students for the duration of a single academic term.

NOTE: This service is in beta. Virtual Labs will be provisioned on a first come first served basis. During this beta period, IS&T may not be able to accommodate all requests immediately if demand exceeds expectations.

Zoom Rooms by IS&T Pilot

Enabling MIT community members to collaborate and interact across the wide spectrum of the MIT experience in an equitable way will ensure that the Institute is well positioned to leap forward and sustainably leverage the global advances realized during the COVID-19 pandemic.

IS&T believes that virtual and hybrid meeting experiences will persist as a part of the fabric of MIT operations in the post-pandemic era, in the same way that other core collaboration tools such as email, telephone, and network services are critical to the operations of the Institute.
