Every year students get caught sharing copyrighted material, which can result in being placed on academic probation and having to pay significant settlement fees. The university cannot protect you against allegations of copyright infringement. The best way to protect yourself is to read the Acceptable Use Policy (AUP) and abide by its rules. Familiarize yourself with the AUP to make sure you are following the rules.
