Contact your university's network administrator.  It appears that your university doesn't want students accessing Second Life (or any program/game/or Internet site that uses as much bandwidth as SL).  Internet access for students at universities or schools is intended for educational purposes (study, research or collaboration).  Using a high bandwidth program like SL not only eats up bandwidth (which the school must pay for) it can slow the rest of the connections down for students using the university's network for it's intended purposes.

If you succeed in circumventing the network's apparent ban on SL then you are cheating both the university (by increasing the bandwidth usage it must pay for) and the students who are trying to get something done that the Internet access was intended for.  Go to a local hotspot or Internet cafe for your SL usage.

Hello,

if the ports that Second Life uses are blocked, then you cannot access Second Life from the university network.

 

But most likely your network is using a proxy server, you'd have to fill in the information of your network's proxy in the Second Life Viewer's preferences (press CTRL+P and go to the 'Network' tab in the viewer).


Ask your network administrator or a neighbour who also uses the network for that information.
