UNIVERSITY (_plural_ UNIVERSITIES) * Institution of higher education (typically accepting students from the age of about 17 or 18, depending on country, but in some exceptional cases able to take younger students) where subjects are studied and researched in depth and degrees are offered. _The only reason why I haven't gone to UNIVERSITY is because I can't afford it._ * 1661, John Fell, _The Life of the most learned, reverend and pious Dr. H. Hammond_ During the whole time of his abode in the UNIVERSITY he generally spent thirteen hours of the day in study; by which assiduity besides an exact dispatch of the whole course of philosophy, he read over in a manner all classic authors that are extant […] USAGE NOTES * In the United States, institutions calling themselves universities are generally relatively large (compared to colleges), and offer postgraduate degrees in addition to undergraduate degrees. In other countries, this distinction is not made and any degree-granting institution is called a university. * In the United States, students will sometimes say that they go to "the university" or to "a university", but they are far more likely to say they are going "to college". In the UK, students go to "university", without the article. In Canada, students go "to university" (also without the article) if they are attending a school that grants bachelor's or postgraduate degrees.
