I don't know your specific situation, or your university's rules, but I
would be uncomfortable with the build farm running on machines without
the explicit consent of the system owner.  The build farm can be a high,
continuous load at times, and we don't want it to disappear (at best)
once the sysadmin notices...

(Even when we ran on public build farms (such as that run by HP and
SourceForge), we asked their admins.  )
