    check with your IT department first

    Yes the AX can do what u want. Check with your uni's IT staff first though.

    I am a sys admin and I have tools that check for unauthorised AP's on the network and it is a disciplinany offence (and enforced!!) to connect wireless equipment to the network.

    Just be sure to let them know that you know howto configure MAC filtering, BSSID and encryption on the wifi traffic.
