How to stop iPhone OS 3.0's captive portal page?

This is a dumb thing to waste my question on, but the new functionality of iPhone OS 3.0 has broken my wifi connection at college.
Now whenever I connect to a network with a captive portal, iPhone helpfully opens the page so I can login. This works great, except at university where you get a captive portal telling you to login via VPN.
Unfortunately, if I hit cancel on the iPhone's window so I can go over and turn on the vpn, the iPhone disconnects me from the network. No network connection = no vpn connection.
How can I turn off this new iPhone feature? Or exempt my college's network?
I've looked at all the options I could find and didn't see anything relevant. Hopefully I'm just overlooking something obvious.
