Windows XP machines will be removed from the network from July 11

Tue, 3 April 18


As previously communicated in April 2018, Sophos no longer release anti-virus updates for Windows XP or 2003 devices. Microsoft also removed support and stopped releasing security updates for Window XP and 2003 in April 2014. 

Any devices running Windows XP, 2003 or other unsupported operating systems, including devices with embedded XP operating system will be removed from the campus network by IT Services, commencing July 2018.

Devices running these operating systems are in breach the University Acceptable Use Policy as they are putting confidential University information, including personal information and the network at unacceptable risk.
