They're obviously having bandwidth problems.

How about asking them nicely to fetch the ISOs once to their central server,
and let students download them from there as often as they like? I've worked
in multiple University IT departments, and we've never turned down a reasonable
request like this, even when bandwidth was severely limited and quotas were
in place. They probably won't either at your U.

Maybe asking via a C.S. professor would have even more effect. ;-)
