I have been accessing my home desktop via VNC for some time.
I use turn on the VNC modules in /etc/X11/xorg.conf
I port forward port 5902 (for example) at work (university in
your case) to port 5900 at home in my ssh config (works on both
windows and unix's).  I then vnc to localhost:2 and it opens
my whole home desktop.  I have access to all the applications.
If someone sends me an mpg or jpg or something hard to view, I
just forward it to work.

Using the non-Java/browser version has given real decent performance
for me.
