You don't need the university to assign copyright to you to release
your program under GPL, you just need to convince the university to
release it under that license. The university keeps the copyright, not
you, but the program is GPL. Many universities will do that, but you
definitively need to clear it with whatever office that handles
intellectual property rights there.

ObDisclaimer: IANAL.


Elections only count as free and trials as fair if you can lose money
betting on the outcome.
