It's a bit of both.  Your university's network department needs to
upgrade their authentication server because it cannot use newer, much
more secure authentication protocols.  If they did this, everyone would
be more secure and you wouldn't have this problem.

It's also an issue that NetworkManager doesn't allow you to disable
TLSv1.1/1.2 and only use 1.0, but we were quietly hoping the problem
would go away and we wouldn't need to add "Yet Another Configuration
Option That Will Be Useless In 3 Years".
