wpa_supplicant and network profiles

I have recently changed from Fedora Core to Archlinux and found it great. I've just managed to also get my laptop on my university wifi with the aid of the Linux Society here (almost all Ubuntu users) as there is no official help for this. However this doesn't work as well as I'd like. I am prompted to change my password every few weeks (and as a security conscious student, I do) but the only way I've got wpa_supplicant to work is to write my username and password into the conf file.
I have already got some network profiles set up as I have a separate network at my flat. I would like to create a separate profile for changing the password in my wpa_supplicant.conf file, Is this possible?
Currently my profiles are set up thus:

Bahamut - Wyrms network downstairs
Falkor - Wyrms network upstairs
none - no network
uni - UAD airconnect

I would like to add another one that would ask for a new password and then overwrite my wpa_supplicant.conf file with a new one, then connecting to the university network, without having to log in, change it manually, then restart networking.

Thanks in advance
