    You should be able to use a hidden network as long as you know the SSID and the password.

    On the assumption that you're permitted to use the network, you will obviously already know the SSID

    But cannot report the SSID of a hidden network. Invest some time learning how this works before offering advice likely to waste people's time.

    Sure. You need to know the name of the network. Pick other enter name and password if needed.
