That's protected by port security.  Just limit them to one mac address per
port.  So only the last machine transmitting will get the reply.  Works
quite well, shut me down for a few days a few years ago when it was first
turned on.

Most common or garden wireless APs / broadband routers will let you clone the mac address, so this is not exactly difficult to get around

And what is wrong with setting up a hub or something in a dormroom? I find it quite convenient to leave both my PC and a laptop running on my desk, for various reasons (too many open terminals and windows is one of them ...)
