VPN: Download the Google Chromebook VPN Profile

Note: If you are using a University of Michigan MiWorkspace managed device, VPN software and profiles are configured for you. Please see MiWorkspace Work Remotely for more information. If you need help connecting to VPN on a managed device, please contact the ITS Service Center. These pages provide VPN configurations for unmanaged devices (e.g. research users, BYOD users).
Note: Sponsored affiliates are able to use the VPN if they are issued a University of Michigan ID (UMID) number with their sponsorship credentials.
