I believe a Wifi network provided by an university inside its facilities is
part of their academic mission and has nothing to do with a "commercial
network operator".
Thus (students') devices are using the academic network.... contributing to
the institution's justification.

Am I seeing something wrong?
If it's BYOD - why is it not BYODs (devices)? Why "one"?
