The MiWorkspace team at Information and Technology Services (ITS) worked with Health Information Technology & Services (HITS) to configure MiWorkspace computers to connect to the Michigan Medicine wired network. Michigan Medicine is increasing security for their wired networks by requiring trusted university devices contain a specific security protocol.

MiWorkspace computers in the following units are now configured to connect to the Michigan Medicine wired network: School of Nursing, College of Pharmacy, University Health Service, Business Engagement Center, Office of Research, and the Office of Tech Transfer.

If you belong to different unit and are required to connect your MiWorkspace computer to a wired network at Michigan Medicine, request the additional security protocol by contacting the ITS Service Center.

Faculty and staff should continue to use MWireless-UMHS while at Michigan Medicine locations for wireless access on MiWorkspace computers. MiWorkspace computers should not have AirWatch installed.

Reminder for connecting personal devices to Michigan Medicine Networks

Personally-owned devices, including smartphones, laptops, and tablets, must be enrolled in AirWatch to connect to the UMHS-8021X wireless network. Visit the AirWatch information page for more information and self-enrollment instructions. For assistance with AirWatch, visit a Health Information Technology and Services (HITS) Help Me Now location or contact the HITS Service Desk at (734) 936-8000 or email msishelp@umich.edu.
