• This is a guide to installing Windows on your Apple Computer via the BootCamp Assistant, the method most GSD students prefer when needing to run Windows.
    • You will first need a copy of Windows if you do not have one already
    • You can obtain a copy of Windows 10 through the 3rd party vendor OnTheHub – the University has an agreement with the vendor to provide students software licenses and discounts.
    • Navigate to //harvard.onthehub.com  and click on Personal Purchases
    • Windows 10 is the newest version and we recommend installing this version on any machine from 2012 to current model.

It is important not to underestimate the amount of space you’ll need for Windows – once you choose this you will not be able to change it after

At least 100GB is recommended just for the Windows installation – remember you’ll still need space for your programs and files!

If you have the available space we usually recommend dedicating 150GB to Windows to avoid running out of space mid-semester!
