Same shit here I'm afraid. I have one admin machine that we bought with the course budget - when we found out we had one (it had been used to plug funding gaps in other courses for years apparently). I don't tell IT about that machine, and they do not know!
Luckily I removed it and the MOTU Ultralite audio interface from the college over the summer, so when all our equipment was burgled last weekend we held onto it. South London - dodgy place! Security isn't so hot where I work either, and nothing, it turns outm was insured!
Best of luck,

After quite a while and after gaining a certain amount of trust and
respect by the IT people (but also with some backing by my boss, and I
must say they are clever guys, not as stubborn as what you write) I got
an 'experimental' machine where I'm admin: but that's because my job may
include installing and testing alpha-alpha software and report back to
But I'd assume 'audio' and 'video' machines are always less restricted
(the people working with MACs have full admin on those as well).
