I've tried everything except directly asking him out (which I can't do for the life of me, believe me I wanted to). I've been super friendly and bubbly, taken interest on the things he does, showed I remember and was interested on things he told me, showed skin, been to a lot of the same parties as him, liked his shit on social media, I'm TRYING.
Yet he still shows absolutely no signs of interest. I don't know if I'm just stupid or not picking them up cause he's sorta shy or if there really is absolutely none. The most I've ever gotten from him was a cute birthday message on Facebook, he saying 'hey + my nickname' whenever we cross each other at uni, a laugh over some jokes I told in class and a quick look at my butt which frankly everyone else takes.
At the risk of sounding like a narcissist I'm definitely conventionally attractive and we bond well over the things we talk about. He's single, we see each other often, I don't know what else I can do besides directly making a move, and I can't bring myself to do that unless I know I'm not getting rejected.
How can I win him over? What would work for you?

Now you know what guys have to deal with, as we are the ones who are expected to ask the girl out the vast majority of the time.
You're gonna have to ask him out, even if it's over something casual, like coffee or lunch. Believe me, I know it's scary as fuck, but you just have to do it. Just last week, I asked out a girl in my lecture. I made an ass of myself, because I didn't notice that she had a promise ring (whoops!). It's been a week, and I still feel like a total dumbass, but it's what happened. I still sit next to her everyday in biochem, and yeah, it's awkward. But I think that awkwardness is mostly in my head, because she is still really friendly and nice towards me.
Honestly, rejection is better than sitting in a state of limbo, wondering if he'd say "yes." At least if you get rejected, you KNOW he isn't interested, and you can move on.1

Since making a move is not an option I'd say you should get even closer to him until it feels less awkward. If you're conventionally attractive and he's single and feels comfortable around you there's a good chance he won't say no.2
