It would require buying new tools to work on your bike, but most thieves probably wouldn't be carrying the right tools around either. I've never done it, but somebody brought up the idea before(probably here), and I was wondering if anyone had had any success with this.
Locking skewers like these from Kryptonite would help.

Probably the best thing to do is to ride a junker around campus. Keep the junker locked up outside your dorm. Bring your good ride inside and use it only when you really need it.
