Arguably students' academic performance is one of the key areas that a university should focus on and perform further analysis on available data. One of the primary objectives of this research is to analyse the Wi-Fi AMP (Access Module Processor) data gathered by the Information Services Department of University of Portsmouth and determine how students are spending their time on university campus. Later these data have been used to examine if this information can be related to the academic performance of the student. With the analysed Wi-Fi data and academic records of the students a preliminary model has been created which tries to show how the time spent by the students in different types of location are correlated.
