As of January 2020 Windows 7 was no longer supported by Microsoft.
Since Windows 7 is no longer receiving security updates it is considered a security risk to allow it on to our network.
For this reason, Windows 7 Computers CANNOT be connected to the campus network.
So what can I do?
Fortunately, as part of Microsoft's Windows 10 initiative you can easily upgrade your computer to Windows 10 for free (notice that you will get a watermark if you don't pay for Windows 10. But it will still be fully functional)
