macOS Ventura Support at ODU
Apple recently released their latest major operating system upgrade, macOS Ventura. Please do not update your Mac to Ventura until we have time to evaluate its compatibility with ODU software, network and server infrastructure.
We will likely be ready to release Ventura to ODU-managed machines in January 2023. If you decide to install Ventura on your home computers, please understand that you may encounter difficulties using essential applications/services. It might be best to wait until the applications/services you use regularly are listed as "supported" in the table below. Those currently listed are a priority and more will be added as we are able to test them.
ITS works hard to ensure that Old Dominion University has a secure and reliable IT infrastructure. We must thoroughly test both Ventura and our own technology before we can guarantee compatibility. We will update this page as more licensed software and University hardware are updated to fully support Ventura.
