Default Hotspoting questions

hey all so im thinking about getting a hotspotting program but had a question first that i couldn't find the answer too anywhere. before i write the question i will give a bit of background information, im allowed to connect my computer to the internet but am i not allowed to connect my phone to the internet, everything i do on the internet is tracked by the administrator, so if i connect my phone and it gets seen i will be kinda screwed!

if i start a hotspot through my computer via the wifi that im connected too would the network administrator be able to see what devices are connected to this hotspot or would it just show up on his tracking screen as my computer name and wouldnt show any evidence of my portable device being connected to the wifi via my computer.

thanks for the help if you understand this!

They would be able to see the traffic as it's being routed through your computer still, and if anybody reports the self-created hotspot, you'd be in doo-doo.
