Gross black stuff on the ceiling.

I'm afraid there is mold on the ceiling
of the dorm room I'm staying in for the next 3.5 weeks.

The climate is very humid here, and the room smells... well, moldy, especially just as you walk in. The window is painted shut and there is no screen, so I can't just keep the window open. My towels aren't drying quickly and are starting to smell musty.
Rooms fill up quickly here and I paid extra for a single room (none would be available at this point), so switching rooms isn't really doable.
Is this mold? Is there something I can do to keep it from spreading, or get rid of it? Would a dehumidifier be a worthwhile investment? And, last but not least, will my bed linens/clothing/etc. be gross and musty when I get home?
