If the server is maintained by students they will certainly have the
root (administrator) password and maybe even have physical access to the
machine. This means they can easily change the access credentials and
give themselves access to the repositories again.

I don't think there is an easy solution for your problem. I would never
let sensitive information be maintained by people who shouldn't have
access to it. I suggest your put the repositories on a server that isn't
maintained by those students.

It's like asking Saddam to store America's atomic bombs :-)
