I'm not sure why its not connecting, but here's what I try when iPads aren't connecting to our school's wireless network:
- On the iPad, turn the WiFi off and back on again. Go to Settings -> WiFi. Turn the switch to Off. Wait a few seconds. Turn it back on. Try connecting to the WiFi network again.
- Restart the iPad. Press and hold the Wake/Sleep button until you see the red slider button. Slide to power off. Wait a few seconds. Press and release the Wake/Sleep button to power it back on again. Once it powers back up, try connecting to WiFi again.
- Try reseting the iPad (different from restarting). Hold down on both the Sleep and Home buttons at the same time for about 10-15 seconds (ignore the red slider button). Keep holding both buttons until the Apple Logo appears. When you see the Apple logo on the black screen, let go of both buttons. Once it powers back up, try connecting to WiFi again.
- Try resetting the network connections on your iPad. General -> Reset -> Reset Network Settings.
Hope this helps!

You ought to contact the IT people who are responsible for your college's wifi system. You may need to register your iPad mini with them before you are allowed on their network. Many schools have recently upgraded their security regarding Internet usage.
