How to Multiple sites

I teach at a university, and wanted to use SilverStripe in my class, with each student having their own site. I have access to an internal server.

My question is how best to support multiple, independent sites? If I have 30 students, do I need 30 installs? Any guidance would be appreciated, by me and our IT department.

No, you won't need multiple installs.
Maybe the "subsites" module ( provides what you need.
Otherwise you could use the same code-base for multiple websites by using symlinked folders. I do this for local development, where I have one SilverStripe code-base and multiple websites that are using this code. Makes updating the CMS very easy across multiple sites.
