That's fine, but you must have a baseline established and published publicly
to inform the students. What about faculty and staff?  Do you treat them the
same?  We do now.  If you abuse the baseline, you get
disconnected....period.

How do you define a bandwidth hog? We just shut off the port of anyone
(faculty, student, etc.) who is abusing his or her network priviledges. In
most cases, the abuse is the result of the person's computer being hacked
and used without permission to run an IRC, warez site, share out video
files, etc.
