Same way. Since the variance of logistic distribution is pi^2/3, your ICC is [variance of the random intercept]/([variance of the random intercept]+pi^2/3). You can obtain this by -display- or -nlcom-: the latter will give you a confidence interval, although you'd probably want to put rather little trust in it, as the sampling distributions of ICC are highly skewed.
