rajkumarr, hi and welcome to HTG.

'limited access' assumes you are reaching the router but no internet access, yes?

Things to try,
Can you get internet with an ethernet cable?

If so;

1) reset the router, turn off at mains for 5 mins, reboot the router and your machine.
2) In network & sharing delete the old connection in manage wireless networks.
3) Now reconnect to that network inputting the passphrase again.

rajkumarr, open command prompt as administrator and run the following command: netsh winsock reset

Restart your PC.

Are you the only one that cannot connect? If not then you need to check with you college IT personnel. Maybe they can help you either way.
