If you have access to a shell on the server machine, you'd need to
edit your server's svnserve.conf file, and tell it to use a password
database; then tell it that anonymous accessors get neither read nor
write access, but authenticated accessors get both. Then create the
password file, and add an entry for yourself.

The Book (http://svnbook.org) explains how to do this.

If, on the other hand, you _can't_ get a shell on that machine, then
you're at the mercy of the company that runs it. Maybe they have a
web interface for configuring subversion; maybe you can simply beg
them to set it up for you.
