    You might have to forward ports if you're connecting through a router.

    In iChat, go to Video -> Connection Doctor from the menu bar.

    If all items have a green check mark, then the problem is not on your end.

    What router do you have? (If you're even connecting to one?)

    Ahh, if you're using the campus wifi that is a problem since you don't have access. You might want to talk to your campus' IT department for help.
