Experiment ... go to a college dorm that's wired, plug your laptop or PC in, start using the net. Assumption here of course is you're not a student there. Nine times out of ten you wont' be challenged and you'll be allowed to use the network. Students also often have friends over that use their systems.

Thus you can't assume that every user is a student or faculty.
