Hiding Bandwidth Usage

I know very little about networks and networking besides setting up small home routers and stuff.... This fall I will be attending College and was warned that they monitor the bandwidth usage pretty heavily. I need my bandwidth.... plain and simple. We're in the age now that transfering a Gigabyte of data a day isn't much anymore and I am wondering if there is anyway to hide the amount of data transfered to/from my computer.... mainly to my machine as I don't send much data. I can not seem to imagine any way possible to do it but since I know little about networks/networking maybe it is possible.

The only idea I can think of is using some sort of a proxy and I guess you would probably have to use someone elses machine on the lan as the proxy.

Sorry its probably not of much help.
