Shelby,

I haven't heard of such changes.


Generically, to connect to the Internet over the campus standard 
wireless network, you should still have the option to use:

   1.  WIPA authentication page before access
   2.  Campus Cisco VPN Service

The first should work with no modifications to Ubuntu.  This is 
straight-up 802.11b with no encryption.  See the campus wireless FAQ:
http://net-services.ufl.edu/provided_services/wireless/user.html



The second option works with software available for download (and a 
little extra effort to get the kernel headers packages, etc.).

   http://net-services.ufl.edu/~ns/cgi-bin/vpn/vpn-clients.cgi



Where (physically) are you trying to connect?  Perhaps you are not 
actually hitting a campus wireless network Access Point?
