Time Capsule vs my campus wireless?

I'm wondering about the automatic backup feature, primarily.

I live on a college campus with a wireless network that works just fine. In order to use the automatic backup feature of Time Capsule, would I have to disconnect from my campus wireless and connect to the time capsule (thus disabling my internet)? I'm not allowed to set up my own wireless networks, so using the Time Capsule as my wireless router point wouldn't work.

    So, you have no need for wireless at all. Connect any external hard drive directly to your computer and backup to it.
