Windows Update On-Campus and Off-Campus
On-campus Windows 7 Windows Update for PCs and connected laptops is handled by a WSUS (Windows Server Update Services) server; on-campus you need not run Windows Update. However, if off-campus you have an University Windows computer (usually a laptop), you will need to manually run Windows Update.
