    Sounds like your University blocks the ports that bit torrent uses. That is within their rights after all.

    You can probably find a way around it if you look around. Don't expect a lot of help around here, and you can pretty much expect to get in trouble with your university if you're caught circumventing their network policies.

    Proceed with caution.

    I can't imagine any "urgency" or "need" to download from a torrent site. I'm sure many campuses block torrent activity. If you want to torrent, your best bet is to do it from home.
