One of the proposals for delivering a cooled muon beam to a muon collider or a high intensity neutrino source uses an induction linac to phase rotate the muons that result from the decay of pions produced by a high intensity proton beam on a target. An induction linac with an acceleration gradient of 2 MV per meter is proposed to produce bunches of muons that have a momentum of 200 MeV/c. The induction accelerator is assembled around the 3 T superconducting solenoids needed to contain the muon beam. The superconducting solenoid must have a warm 100 mm gap at 1000 mm intervals down the phase rotation channel. The acceleration structure for the induction linac is around this gap. The superconducting solenoid will have an inside warm radius of 201 mm. The thickness of the superconducting magnet and its cryostat must be about 60 mm near the acceleration gap. An access region of 85 mm between induction linac sections is allowed for the superconducting coil cold mass supports, the electrical leads and the supply of cryogenic cooling. This report presents a design for a 3 T phase rotation induction linac superconducting magnet system, its cryostat, and its cooling system
