What does "way onto" mean?
This was from the next sentences: "Living in the student infirmary, making it a one-man dormitory, was not exactly the college experience Roberts had in mind. But it was a way onto what had been a closed campus."

It means a way INTO the campus or a way to enter the campus. The word 'on' is often used with a college campus. For example the man lived IN the the town, the student lived ON the campus.

"Way" is a noun, followed by a preposition "onto". The object of the preposition is "what had been a closed campus".
