MWS Windows First Login Off Campus - Connect to Wi-Fi




Logging in to a computer provided by Neighborhood IT for the first time over Wi-Fi while off campus. For a Windows computer that was shipped directly to you with the "@Home" process, please follow the setup instructions found at the following link instead: Windows Deployment at Home


For your MiWorkspace laptop to work correctly, you have to log into it once on the University network. The steps below walk you through doing this while off-campus. You only need to perform these steps once:

  1. Plug-in the computer with the provided power supply and power it up
  2. Press CTRL-ALT-DELETE to bring up the login screen then click OK on the Information Technology Policy Statement screen
  3. Click the network globe icon: Globe icon in the bottom right corner, and choose your home Wi-Fi in the list of available networks that pops up
  4. After you connect to your home Wi-Fi, give the computer a few minutes to get connected and then click on the Wi-Fi icon in the lower right corner of the screen. Verify that you see “Campus Connection” at the top of your network list, and that it says "Connected" 
    1. If you connected successfully to your local Wi-Fi and have given the computer several minutes to establish that connection but still do not see "Campus Connection," please contact the Service Center for assistance (Contact information may be found below under the "Additional Information" section)
  5. Once you have verified that the "Campus Connection" is present, you can now log in with your Uniqname and UMICH (Level-1) password in the fields below "Other user" in the center of the screen

Once these steps have been completed and you are logged in for the first time, you will be able to log in normally going forward.

Additional Information

If you experience difficulty logging in to your new MiWorkspace computer for the first time over off-campus Wi-Fi, or need additional information or assistance, please contact the ITS Service Center.
