In my university, the wifi signal covers anywhere in the campus.

However, an internet client software is needed for users to login before the internet connection is available. And there are no such client in my android cellphone.

So, is it possible to set up an VPN server using my PC(windows 7, which has the access to the Internet), and then connect to it using my android cellphone to get the access to the Internet?

P.S. I have no access to the routers because it is controlled by the univerisity.
