Torrent Blocker Blocking UpdatesFollow

So.. yeah the title pretty much says it all. I'm in college right now so I spend a lot of time on campus studying or waiting for other classes. So i'd like to kick back in the library and play some of the Beta. Unfortunately i believe the university's torrent blocker is stopping Bittorent (what I WAS using to download the game files) and possibly the FFXIV's main downloader application. Does anyone have any ideas how I can bypass this?

Okay, thank you for the link and yes I do have a laptop but was hoping I wouldn't have to run off campus everytime I have to patch.

For beta you may have to, I'm hoping that for retail servers there will be an option to get the update directly from SE. Not everyone can utilize torrents because of ill-informed IT staff.

That's it, the idiot IT staff is the problem, not the people doing what they shouldn't be with torrents.
