UNSW has uniwide wireless and CSE (the school of Computer Science and
Engineering) also has wireless around the K17 building.  You do need
to be a student to access either (unless you do some deal with the
uni/school), but if you can find one, a student can probably use her
laptop as an AP.  Neither uniwide or cse wireless are free, they're
charged for data usage outside the unsw network.
