MonoDevelop has GTK# designer support, but you must have the Mono
runtime to run these apps. If that's not possible, you could try doing
the code on your Linux station and porting it with the gtk and other
libs to Visual Studio on campus. Or you could go with Winforms.

At worst, you could dual boot Linux and Windows. Many schools provide
Windows and VS for free or next to nothing.
