or setup your vpn on port 443 :)

however, some networks go so far as to do deep packet inspection on the
traffic itself, in which case this might still get through or otherwise
raise an alarm with the hypothetically competant network admin.

i've been meaning to get around to trying one of those tcp/dns implementations
for such cases (also it's often a way to get around needing to register/pay
with a number of hotspot vendors).
