Upgrade to Windows 10 by January 31, 2020!
Support for Windows 7 ends in January 2020. University policy requires all devices connected to the network run on a supported operating system in order to receive security updates and protect against vulnerabilities. Beginning February 1, 2020, all devices running Windows 7 will be removed from the University network. To avoid an interruption of service, please contact the ITS Service Desk at askIT@albany.edu or (518) 442-3700.
Tired of Spam and Robo Calls?
ITS is receiving reports that many people are getting spam and robocalls on their University phones. These calls are not related to the new telephone system or campus network. Visit our Spam and Robo Calls page for ways to minimize the disruption, as our local and long distance carrier cannot block the original source of these calls. To report a Spam or Robocall, email ITS at askIT@albany.edu with the incoming phone number. This will assist with identifying, confirming and blocking repeat callers.
Are You Using Jabber?
Customers using Jabber, the new computer-based "soft phone" application, will receive a pop-up message indicating that Jabber is not recommended for emergency calls. Anyone using Jabber must first accept the 911 notification in order to enable this service.
