1.Ask your admin to open the ports needed for those apps (not likely going to happen)
2. use a modem and get your own connection
firewalls are in place to protect the network. A lot of universities are blocking those apps to preserve bandwicth for all students. Without opening those ports you are out of luck

sorry, someone may know how you can redirect the ports, or spoof them, but that is the purpose of firewalls, to close ports. Again, ask you administrator

Well first off it doesn't make any sense that the firewall would limit traffic to only port 3128.  But let's probe a bit here - you mean it's limited to 3128 outbound?  Only traffic with a destination port of 3128 is allowed?  That would mean you have no access to 99.99999 percent of what's on the Internet.  Is that the case?  You would not be able to see sites like yahoo or cnn or experts-exchange.com.  But clearly you got here...so it seems to me that traffic is clearly not limited to port 3128.  What operation have you tried to do that have been unsuccessful?  Perhaps the file transfer protocol FTP is not allowed from your dorm?  Or perhaps you are limited to using a proxy server for Internet access?  I am just guessing because I don't have more to go on.  One alternate way to get files to your machine is to use uuencoded messages that you can find on usenet newsgroups.  You download say several usenet messages and then use a uudecode program to whack them all together and turn them into an executable that will run on your computer.  You could have friends e-mail you the uuencoded files as well as get them from the news groups.   Another way to get stuff would be...if you have a laptop computer...take it to a local Internet cafe and go nuts. :-)
