I have tried to connect my speaker in my dorm but it has not worked. I have rebooted it multiple times and tried connecting again it still has not successfully connected. It just says "unexpected error occurred".

Your dorm could well employ 'wireless client isolation' as a security measure. That's assuming there isn't a portal page for WiFi login, in which case Sonos wouldn't connect anyway.

Your best bet is to use a travel router. Connect the router to the dorm's WiFi -- you'd better make sure this is permitted as the authorities would detect it -- and then your Sonos and Mac could connect to the router's private network.
There are 2 wifi connections. one of them has a username and password to log in and the other one is the gamer wifi for students that has 1 common password which I was trying to use to connect the play 1, but it still didn't work.
