How do you keep your bicycle's tires pumped with air when the bike has to be locked in a common bike room?

I am moving into a "luxury" condo. Along with all the other bullshit that this involves, I am forbidden from keeping my bike downstairs in the common bike room. I am not allowed to bring my bike upstairs to my apartment.
Problem: I commute to work by bike. It's a road bike with skinny tires that need to pumped up to full pressure (110psi) at least once, sometimes twice a week. How do I do that?
There is no common pump in the shared bike room. I do not want to leave my own floor pump in there, because it'll probably get stolen.
This seems like a trivial problem, but it's one of those headscratching inconveniences that really gets in the way of something (bicycle commuting) that is a way of life for me.
What have others done to get around this situation? Creative solutions...come one come all!
