Ubuntu can read/write to NTFS partitions (which are the default Windows 7 type). So just create a new partition as NTFS with Windows 7, and then mount it with Ubuntu when you're using Ubuntu.

Details here.

Summary: use ntfs-config under Ubuntu.

Ubuntu Linux can read/write all the file systems Windows 7 can make, with the exception of exFAT.
