My university has a policy that they won't
block any file sharing programs:

We maintain a stringent policy of not implementing any sort of content-control methods upon our users. We believe imposing restrictions that block specific programs for use on ResNet would not be in the best interest of you, the ResNet subscriber, and it is for this reason that we will not employ such means.
BitTorrent doens't work very well though, it takes forever to get stuff. Same with IRC. At least they don't block programs like some schools do, though.
