The wi-fi networks rely on access points that use radio signals; these signals are affected by many things including devices that put out their own wi-fi signal e.g. wireless printers, cell phones acting as hot spots and mifi devices. Anything that puts out its own SSID can cause problems on the college's wi-fi network. In order to limit interference, please don't use or enable these types of devices in the academic and administrative buildings on campus.
