Pacman source URL?

I'll be working from a facility with restricted internet access. Where does pacman source its downloads from? Is it from

Also, correct me if I'm wrong, but pacaur sources its files from whatever repository is listed as the upstream URL, right? Often that's GitHub.

You can check your mirror list with

cat /etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist

It'll print the mirrors you're using along with the url.
