apt-get upgrade list of downloads

I've got a potato system at home (this box, letdown) which is
100MB of downloads away from being up-to-date. Since I've only got
a slow 2K/s link, for which I pay by the minute, I'd like to take
advantage of my University's lab to download the files, then use
apt-get from local disk.

The apt-get upgrade -u command lists the packages which are to be
downloaded, but not the URLs (or anything from which I can easily
determine the URLs). Does anyone know of a way to get a list of
URLs to packages from apt?
