Using OARS

Using OARS From Outside U-M

As a security step, users connecting to OARS from a non-UM network, such as a public WiFi or home network, must use the appropriate U-M Virtual Private Network (VPN) client for your campus. See Use a Secure Internet Connection to download the VPN for your campus.

  • Note that MGuest is considered a non-UM network.
  • A VPN connection is not needed if using a Windows machine supported by MiWorkspace.
  • Connections through wired ethernet on campus and MWireless are secure and do not require VPN.
