Consider the Cisco VPN from your personal laptop.
If you are using a personal (non- UMHS) laptop to connect to 802.11x, you will be required to install AirWatch on your personal laptop to directly connect to that network.
HOWEVER, you can avoid installing AirWatch by connecting to either Mwireless network (Mwireless or Mwireless- UMHS) and using the Cisco VPN to access UMHS network resources. I recommend this approach for most users.
(Reportedly, AirWatch on a Mac will install a DIFFERENT encryption system than Apple FileVault, which may be quite difficult to remove.)
