I think your college knows why they restrict your web access.

If you nonetheless want to hack this, some useful links are found below. The method described (via the proxytunnel program) requires some effort on your side to minimize the preconditions on corporate side:

proxytunnel probably is one of the most general and elaborate methods known today to bypass any corporate firewall/web proxy. It even works when a full layer-7 firewall is in effect allowing access to any website, any protocol and any port.
