The difference between "university", "college" and "school" is the size of the student body, where "university" is the greatest, and "school" is the smallest. While you can have a standalone college or school, a university is comprised of smaller schools and/or colleges; e.g., Barnard College (circa 2,300 students) is a standalone women's college that offers undergraduate degrees, while Columbia University confers its undergraduate degrees through Columbia College (ca. 4,100 students), the School of Engineering and Applied Sciences (ca. 1,400 students) and the School of General Studies (ca. 1,300 students).
