Connecting to Windows Software Update Service (WSUS)

Make it easy to keep your computer safe with K-State’s Windows Software Update Service (WSUS), for K-State owned computers. WSUS deploys the latest Microsoft product updates to computers running Microsoft Windows. Computers connected to the WSUS server automatically receive critical/security patches. Windows 10 version updates (e.g. Creators Update 1703) will be released on a managed schedule and email communication will go out prior to each release.

K-Staters located on the Manhattan, Olathe, or Salina campus are encouraged to use WSUS on their university owned machines running Windows 10 Pro or Enterprise. See the K-State’s Windows Software Update Service (WSUS) knowledge base article for instructions on how to set up the service.

University PPM 3430 Security for Information, Computing and Network Resources requires the latest security patches available to be installed.

Contact your departmental IT support or the IT Help Desk (helpdesk@ksu.edu, phone: 532-7722) to determine what your department is doing to keep your computers up-to-date.
