The reason I asked the questions was that when you drop your hosting account here, you will no longer be able to manage the DNS records for your domain. It thus becomes better to manage your DNS records at your registrar or some other nameserver where you'll be able to actually manage the records - your registrar or a free one like zoneedit for instance. I dunno if your university runs a nameserver that will allow you easy control over your dns records.
Note that if you have a dedicated server you can run your own nameservers!
