Simple workaround for now:

deb http://site1.ip.address/debian jessie-backports main
#deb http://site2.ip.address/debian jessie-backports main

Now just change the comment from one to the other, run apt-get
update and go.

Second workaround, if you have lots of entries to be switched:
create two sources.list files, named home.list and uni.list.

When you move from place to place, copy the appropriate one 
in to /etc/apt/sources.list and run apt-get update.
