Important note: iPod touch and iPad devices need an existing network connection to download and install the UIC-WiFi profile. You do not have to be connected to UIC-WiFi to download and install the profile, but you do have to be connected to the Internet. Please use another wireless connection (at home, coffee shop). 

If you are having trouble opening the file using Safari on your device, try downloading the file to your computer and send it to yourself as an email attachment.
