That depends on your local setup. However, I doubt that it will be very precise:

* students could access the WiFi from outside the classroom (but still in the vicinity)
* if the WiFi is a router, the machines would get "local" IPs, 10.0.0.x
* if the DNS is campus-wide (DHCP), there is way to control anything on campus
