Universities usually firewall their internet connections to permit
only port 80 and 443 outbound.
Sometimes you have to use an authenticated proxy to do that as well.

If you're lucky some universities will allow port 22 (SSH) outbound.

This makes IRC unavailable obviously, although tools such as Telegram,
Slack, etc. which all use https and websockets to function work
perfectly fine.
