Is there a compelling reason to use the DHCP provided by the
University? Do you have an app that does not like NAT, and must use a
IP provided by the University?

Question to list: When the DHCP relay "relays" a DHCP request, does
the source MAC address of the host requesting the IP stay the same or
change with the NAT? Or is BD's problem solved by Berry's suggestion
to add firewall rules to allow the DHCP traffic.
