This paper introduces to students’ monitoring system taken into consideration easy access and time saving. The proposed system will be used in faculty of computing and information system at King Abdulaziz University (KAU). Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) and wireless technology are two characteristics which will be applied as infrastructure in the indoor environment. University Based Services (UBS) and tag IDs of the RFID are being used in this paper, in order to determine the location and predict the next positional direction with reader node. An academic system for identifying and monitoring attendance at computing college at KAU will be described. Therefore, hybrid RFID and Wireless LAN (WLAN) technologies will be proposed to be positional in indoor academic environment.
