download a ruby tarball, extract it, then cd into the directory it
created then:

./configure --prefix=~/ruby
make
make install
~/ruby/bin/ruby -v

I sometimes follow this method even for machines that I do have
administrative control of. If the machines have Java installed, JRuby
may be another option:
> java -jar ~/jruby-complete.jar -v
ruby 1.8.5 (2007-09-25 rev 3876) [i386-jruby1.1]
