VPN: Download the iOS VPN Profile

Note: If you are using a University of Michigan MiWorkspace managed device, VPN software and profiles are configured for you. 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.

Download the VPN Client

Important: These instructions will only work with the Safari web browser on the iOS device.

  1. Launch Safari on the iOS device and navigate to this page.
  2. Select the appropriate client based on your university role.
  3. Go into your Settings and select Profile Downloaded
  4. Follow the configuration prompts to install the profile. Enter your uniqname and password. Staff, faculty, students, and sponsored affiliates will be prompted to authenticate twice - this is normal and allows users the option to choose to tunnel all traffic or only tunnel traffic to and from U-M networks.

Connect to the VPN

Important: You must have a network connection to connect via the VPN.

  1. Select Settings - VPN.
  2. Select a profile and toggle the connection on. If the connection is successful, you will see the VPN icon appear in the device status bar.
