you're asking for trouble using P2P software in any University.

most unis setup a firewall on proxy level to stop students from using such programs anyway.

what can you download (legally) that might be even remotely useful?

The bittorrent listening ports are probably blocked, there are 2 ways to get around this, the first is to convince the admin to forward the port to your computer or, if you have access to a remote server like www.clearphp.com that has php and mysql support you could use a program like http://www.torrentflux.com/ to download the torrent file to the remote server and then download from the remote server to your computer using http.
