Local installation RStudio - no root access

To whom it may concern,

I would like to install RStudio on a linux cluster:

dm19@farm3-head3 ~ $ uname -a
Linux farm3-head3 3.2.0-105-generic #146-Ubuntu SMP Fri Jun 10 20:10:44 UTC 2016 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

dm19@farm3-head3 ~ $ lsb_release -a
No LSB modules are available.
Distributor ID: Ubuntu
Description: Ubuntu 12.04.5 LTS
Release: 12.04
Codename: precise

I don't have root access. Can I install it locally from sources?

Thank you for your attention.
