All forms of Microwave require line of sight

So if you must go wireless, you will need to go to something like radio. However, that is a large campus to cover. Your going to have to run wires somewhere even if it is to the AP's.

Start with a site survey

by sirkozz In reply to Wireless

802.11 a/b/g could work for your location.
The only way to know is for a professional to conduct a site survey.
There are several ways to provide WIFI coverage in outdoor settings to minimize cabling requirements.
To give you some possible numbers figure 1 AP for every 70,000 square feet for 11Mbs coverage, and roughly $1500 for each AP (cabling, antennas, ect.) not including running 120VAC if required. Install should be under 200K including site survey and elecrtical if required.
