The new macOS Monterey is now available for installation on WVU-owned and -managed computers, and employees are encouraged to update at their earliest convenience. This update can take up to two hours to complete and will require a restart of the computer. Personally owned devices used for work or study also may be updated anytime.

To avoid potential disruption on Jan. 3, when Monterey will be pushed to all WVU computers, Information Technology Services recommends employees schedule a convenient time for the update.

ITS has tested Monterey against critical applications such as eCampus and Banner/STAR, and found no compatibility issues. If you encounter a problem, call the ITS Service Desk at 304-293-4444 or contact your college or department IT team. If you work at the Health Sciences Center and have problems, contact the HSC ITS Help Desk at 304-293-3631, option 1.
