Yes.  Since you're at a university, it seems likely there are lots of
such lists and the sysadmin is familiar with the procedure.

I don't know if it's easy to reproduce various settings automatically
(@Mark: do you have script to "clone" a list with a new name?), but
you can ask your sysadmin to duplicate those.  As list owner you could
do it yourself, too, but if you need to reproduce "free text" fields,
the treatment of leading and trailing spaces can be fiddly.
