Macbook Pro won't connect to wifi despite picking up the signal...

Hi there, I bought a Macbook Pro from a friend last week - today at work though it won't pick up the wi fi at all which is a major hassle for me. The airport bar at top with the relevant work wi fi has a tick beside it so it looks like it is picking it up.
However the connection bars keep going up and down saying looking for networks.
My phone connects fine first time to the wi fi so that's not the issue. Has anyone else experienced something similar?
To give a little more information - 19 other people here are having no problems at all with the wi fi on their laptops today - plus it has been working fine for me until now.

Hello and welcome.

The first thing to check would be that the date and time are correct. Many corporate networks require this to allow authentication.
