Trouble connecting to xbox live at university

okay so I just got my xbox for christmas and have got back to uni with it. I tried connecting to xbox live but it won't connect.

I realised that to connect to my halls internet, every device I use on the internet i have to sign in on. Obviously on my laptop I can do this as I connect, and then sign in on my browser.

When I try to connect on xbox however, it says the connection to the network is fine, but connection to the internet is non-existant (because I haven't signed in). 

Is there anyway I can connect?

Hey JasmineCougar78! Yes, you can try a bridged connection from your laptop to your Xbox 360 console(support.xbox.com/.../win-computer). Or, you have the option to do something called 'MAC Spoofing':
 

1. Access your wireless computer

2. Load the webpage and accept the TOU page, make sure you can browse to a few pages after doing so!

3. Bring up CMD and type in ipconfig/all.

4. Locate the wireless network adapter and find the “Physical Address”. Write this down.

5. Turn off the computer.

6. Turn on the Xbox.

7. Go into the Network Settings.

8. Select Configure Network.

9. Move over to Additional Settings.

10. Move one down and select Advanced Settings.

11. Select Alternate MAC address.

12. Type in the Physical Address you wrote down (no spaces or colons).

13. Make sure you have hit done at the bottom. This will save the setting and now you can test the connection!

Let us know how it goes! :)

You have to bridge your connection through another device.
