    My university blocks gaming on their internet.

    So basically all the ports for gaming are closed according to the IT guys at my university so i am not able to play any games etc... anybody know anyways around it other than purchasing my own ISP in my apartment on campus? I already talked with all my roommates we are all gamers so we are willing to purchase a separate ISP for the apartment we dorm in but i just wanted to see if there was another way around it...

    Thanks for any help in advance.

    Thoroughly read the agreement you signed when you joined the university, specifically the policies on the student services they provide. If it doesn't mention any restrictions, then you should bitch to the administration and request a refund for your boarding costs, or at least a reduction. In that event, they would be breaking a contractual agreement to provide a service.
    I am the seer in the dark,
    the vagabond of yore,
    valediction.
    I am the sum of all your parts,
    and proprietor of all.
    A miasma,
    the conclusion,
    blackmonger of Inlé,
    valediction.
    Synapses fray,
    my form now vivid,
    as torpor sets and blood grows tepid.
    With every ounce of flesh now offered,
    I hold your corpse within my coffers.
    Knitted cells now split asunder,
    stand alongside me brother.
    Take your place amongst my Owsla,
    we march at dawn now and forever.

    To be fair, just closing the ports for gaming shouldn't exactly prohibit you from gaming
    Like, I can still play let's say Minecraft, even doh I don't have its exact ports opened.

    Now if they were talking about closing some essential ports used for communication (I'm talking about sub-1024, 800 and such), that would cause some problems. But then again you'd notice those problems in several other places as well, not just in gaming.

    Most games shouldn't require you to open specific ports. Although, if you are having trouble and willing to pay, I would definitely get my own internet service.

    Just purchase the ISP. The other things people suggested sound like a lot of work. If you have the money, just buy the ISP and you guys will be able to game freely...

    Why do you want to play games on university? Shouldn't you be focused on studying and that sh*t?

    Because i start classes at 7am and i end usually at 10:30 or 11:30 so i have a shit load of time on my hands when homework and studying should only take me about 1-3 hours depending on the day i still have 7 or 8 hours to kill and 2 of those hours are spent at the gym then its 5-6 hours i need to kill.

    I cannot even connect to steam so the steam ports are locked.
