you need to give more information. If you don't have a telephone line, this probably isn't the product you want: it will work as a network 'hub' but it's overkill for that.
Hi - in a word 'no'. It is an adsl2+ modem with one port for the telephone micorfilter (RJ45) and 1 wired port (ethernet) to connect to your laptop or device with an ethernet port (Note: MacBook Airs and most tablets/smartphones do not normally have an ethernet port). There is no wireless capability. I think that you need to find out what's available in your room at Uni. or what's nearby. I'm sure you will get your internet connection via a University wireless access point or hot-spot somewhere nearby e.g. BT wifi or Sky wifi. Hope that helps.
This modem would be useless without a telephone port. So,no it won't work. If you're on campus they probably give you a Ethernet port in the room or you could geta 3G modem. In any case this model is no good, your best best is a wireless router with cable/3g support.
Asus rt66u is great but expensive, but ignore anything "adsl" as that will need a phone line.
Hope that helps!
