Soem friends of mine that live on the university campus have lag problems with some games. I was wondering if setting up a proxy server would solve the issue?

It would depend how and where the proxy server is. If the lag is caused by internet bandwith, then the proxy won't do anything. If the proxy is internal it could do some improvements, but not in games.
Tell us how has been built that network.

I don't think your friend's connection is going to be helped by anything, save losing all the other connections the university is making to the internet. I mean, your friend is one among probably hundreds, if not thousands of other students going through a single router to the T3 line, not to mention all the other connections the university makes. All of those simultaneous connections are going to kill his ping times, even if all the others are using a relatively small percentage of the bandwidth.

Do a tracert to the server IP and see where the signal is getting jammed. If it's the uni's router, well, heh, proxy won't help.
