I apologize for preaching, but usually universities ban IRC because
it consumes finite resources which are needed for course-related work.
As a university student myself, I get pretty annoyed if I can't get
a terminal to do some work because people are browsing the web, for example.

I don't know about .NZ, but in .AU net access isn't really too expensive.
