No, this does not violate current policy. The students are part of the University every bit as much as employees of a company are entitled to receive valid public addresses for their BYO smart phones/whatever in the office. That’s not sub assignment or reassignment, that’s just utilization within the Universities own network. > In the case of IPv4, the solution is easy, use NAT and private addresses (but > not all the universities do that). However in IPv6 this is not the solution, > we don’t have NAT. NAT is not required by current policy. The policy text as it stands does not prohibit the (temporary) use of public addresses on LAN or WLAN segments controlled by the entity holding the prefix even if the device(s) are not owned/directly controlled by the University. Especially in the case where the devices are in the possession/control of employees/students of the institution in question. If you think that is the case, then you have misunderstood the current policy.
