Enrolling user-owned (BYOD) Windows computer in Intune

In the summer of 2018, University adopted Microsoft Azure Active Directory (AAD) and Intune as a new platform for the management of computers and mobile devices. This article provides you with instructions on how to register your personal Windows 10/11 computer that you use for work (Bring your Own Device, BYOD). For more information on the benefits of this new solution, please see Related Articles section on the right. 

NOTE: Only personal devices that are being used to access University systems and data (BYOD) should be registered with Azure AD. University-owned devices, and devices purchased with research grant money should be joined to Azure AD.

Method #1: Company Portal

To enroll your device using Company Portal website:

  1. Go to Microsoft Intune Web Company Portal (https://portal.manage.microsoft.com/devices)
  2. Sign in with your Microsoft Work Account (UWin Account)
  3. You may be asked if you want to "Stay signed in to all your apps." Please ensure that the box next to Allow my organization to manage my device is checked before clicking OK. Please note that selecting this option will only apply to managing University apps and data, and not the entire device. For more info, see Device Management Basics for Users

  4. If your computer is not on the list of your enrolled devices, click on Tap here to tell us which device you're using or to add a new device. If you are not sure what your computer's name is, see: How to find your Windows computer name
