UMD-Secure with XpressConnect

UMD-Secure uses WPA2-Enterprise to allow access to the network and to provide strong security, including data encryption. UMD-Secure is the preferred method for WiFi connections on campus.  To setup your device to use this service, ITS has implemented the XpressConnect Wireless Login system.  XpressConnect is a quick, easy, and secure way to connect your mobile devices to the campus wireless network.  After a one-time set-up, each device will automatically connect to campus WiFi without any need to login or authenticate.

Accessing UMD-Secure requires that you use your UMICH password. See UMICH Password Hub  for additional information about this password. Users who still have UMICH and Active Directory UMROOT passwords that are different see Synchronization of UMICH Passwords to Active Directory UMROOT passwords . If you are having trouble logging in, you should change your password.
