Why don't you just set an environment variable of the repository URL and
document that for your students ? Say, you set a variable SVNREPO so your
students can do:

svn co $SVNREPO/foo

I guess this is about the best you can do here as there's no equivalent to
CVSROOT for SubVersion... and you normally only need the repository URL for
checkouts and merges anyway, all other commands take the repository URL that
is stored in the working copy.
