Historically, Microsoft Visio was preinstalled by Information Technology on all managed lab/classroom computers and made available to managed staff/faculty computers for on-demand installation via the ‘Software Center’.
Due to licensing changes imposed by Microsoft, installed instances of Microsoft Visio now come at a significant cost to the University.
As such, on or after July 31, 2019, all installed instances of Microsoft Vision will be removed from lab/classroom computers unless explicitly required by curriculum.
It will also become necessary to periodically audit installed instances on managed staff/faculty computers to ensure license compliance requirements are met and license fees accounted for.
Microsoft Visio remains available for download to staff/faculty machines from IT's Software Centre. If you require software similar in function please consider alternatives first, particularly where the use case is sporadic and relatively small. There are options available online.
