Faculty and Staff upgrade to Microsoft Office 2019

IT will upgrade all staff and faculty computers during the Winter recess to the latest Microsoft Office 2019 Suite. This is taking place after a successful migration of all Public (student) computers during this past summer. The upgrades will take place overnight with no impact on end-users. Your files and installed programs will remain as they are. We will also have designated technicians on each floor the morning following your upgrade to assist users with any unforeseen issues.

Our anticipated schedule (subject to adjustments) for the upgrade is the following:

Floor                 Date
C, X, Y & Z        1/6/20
First                  1/8/20
Second             1/13/20
Third                 1/15/20
Fourth               1/20/20
Fifth                  1/21/20
Sixth                 1/22/20
Seventh            1/23/20
Eighth               1/24/20
Ninth                1/27/20

Please keep in mind that if you use any software package that is crucial to your work but is not used campus-wide or you've installed yourself, you need to check with the developer to make sure that it is compatible with Office 2019. If you have any questions or concerns or would like to schedule your upgrade sooner, please contact IT Services at itservices@gc.cuny.edu.

Thank you in advance for your understanding and support.
