install sw with apt-get or dpkg

I'm in the process to set up an R-GRASS workshop and I need to install the library rgrass7 ( see ) which really on pre-installed GRASS version.
Is there a way to install grass using the apt-get or dpkg without sudo privilege?
I have tried
dpkg grass_7.4.0-1_all.deb --root=$HOME/bin
But still get permission issues or sudo privilege required.
Thank you
