my university also have a certain supply of carbon fiber cloth, while its true its dangerous to work with (dust is toxic and is conductive by nature, thus clogs and destroys power-tools) but as long as you work in a well ventilated area and where proper maskage. its safe. as far as cosmetic 2x2 twill versus standard cf, yes if you want to make it look cf pretty its going to be awfully expensive, but if you plan to paint over it, or just leave it raw, standard carbon fiber is rather inexpensive by comparison. but by far my personal favorite is vacuum formers (abs plastic) :-)
