It is very easy to setup the machines to use the same home directory.
Your server machine would have to run the nfs daemon and export /home
to all the clients.  The clients then mount the /home directory off
the fileserver.  I use this setup on my home LAN.  It's smaller than
your school's LAN, but still the same concept.
