I live on campus. I don't know if it's different for consoles, but with my 3DS I can't access the internet because of the school firewall. I normally don't use it much, but with Ouya I wouldn't be able to download games. Is there a way to bypass the firewall?

Yes, this should be possible (there are always ways and means), though I can't give you an exact solution right now. If the OUYA uses port 80, which I think it might well do, it may be relatively simple trick of hooking the OUYA up to an intermediary device, such as a PC, and using VPN tunnelling / proxy server. Or maybe even not a problem at all / might just work fine despite the firewall? No guarantees though, and probably something someone with a bit more knowledge of networking might be better positioned to answer

could always try one of those 4g wifi boxes, but the monthly plans are pretty damn expensive.
