So just recently, my school re-did their whole Wifi, following this, they restricted access on almost everything, but their home website. I know you can get around this sort of thing using a VPN. However, I've tried a few VPN's and it seems they don't work because the VPN's API isn't availible? I assume this is because I'm running a custom ROM. So I was wondering, since I am running a custom ROM, is their a alternative thats possibly even better than using a VPN? I really can't just use mobile data since I've got a limit per month and its getting to that limit quickly.

There are quite a few ROMs that still support VPN connections. But honestly, you're in the same boat as most corporate employees.
What most of us do? Use mobile data, wait until we go somewhere with free wi-fi or home.
