Ok well I have a couple of simple ideas:
1. Check your network settings: check to make sure it is set to connect using DHCP (assuming you're supposed to use simple DHCP to connect to the internet). Try setting it to manual mode wait a minute, then switch back to DHCP. This sometimes will clear up any old settings.
2. Does your school require you to have any special software installed to connect to the internet? I know my old college required all dorm computers to have special software installed to connect to their network.
3. Do you have any peer to peer or bittorrent applications installed? Often if your college servers detect these programs they will turn your connection off. You can install an application called LittleSnitch (find it on VersionTracker) to find out if any applications are trying to connect to the internet, and stop them from connecting.
