How to get the password of the WiFi I am connected to?

Nipun

The IT guys of the university connected my laptop to the WiFi network but I do not know the password. This means that I cannot connect my phone with the WiFi nor can I disconnect it from my laptop. Is there any way I can get to know what the password is?

I'm on Windows 8.

PS: Mods please move this thread to networking if that's the more appropriate area for this query.
 
^that's not what he meant :)

Manage wireless network profiles - Windows Help

Open up Command Prompt (or PowerShell) in administrator mode (just type in cmd at start, right click and run as admin) and fire this
Code:
netsh wlan show profile name=“Your_University_Wifi_network_name” key=clear
p.s. with the quotes this time :D and if you can't find the name properly type in netsh wlan show profiles to get a list of networks you've connected to.

However you may not be able to connect Wifi from phone if they have MAC filtering enabled.
Anyone know what can I do in that case?
