    We need more info to be able to help you.

    What type of network your university run? How does IP address get assigned such as via dhcp, static IP, PDC based logging in, wireless network? When you authenticate with username and password, are you logging into domain controller?

    Wpa-supplicant is solely used with wireless networks which use WPA keys. Does your Uni's network support that?

    Eth0 is for ethernet wired card. Does your Linux install recognize your network card? How did you configured it ( dhcp or static? ). Wireless cards use something like wlan0.
