Windows 11 is Microsoft's first major Operating System upgrade in 6 years. The University will be undertaking extensive testing and planning before upgrading any of its owned and managed devices such as on-campus computers. It is expected this will take place in 2022.

However, if you own a compatible windows 10 device, you will be offered this free upgrade by mid-2022.

To ensure you can continue to use University apps and resources the following services have been tested and are compatible with Windows 11:

  • Wi-Fi (eduroam & UoP Guest)
  • VPN
  • AppsAnywhere - if you find any apps that do not work, please report them to our team
  • Library Resources
  • Printing
  • UoP Websites
  • Video Conferencing e.g Zoom

Any further Windows 11 updates will be available on the Windows 11 article.
