Default College wireless a pain, any ways to make this a bit more bearable?

So pretty much I just moved into Rez, they have a shared wireless which is pretty cool. The problem is, when you aren't active on your computer for say, 20 minutes it logs you off the system and you have to login again. So, for example, when I play xbox live I get booted from my game every 20 minutes unless I go and be active on my computer. Which is a pain. Is there any sort of program available that keeps a connection running when I'm not active on the PC? Thanks!

I am sure this is done for a security reason. I would contact the people who take care of the IT stuff and see if they can assist you.
