yes... and no. A university is composed of different colleges ( or schools, if you want-) usually a university will have a school of arts and sciences, education, communication, etc. A separate college may specialize in one of these areas, like a teacher college or one like MIT that specializes in sciences, math, and technology.

Depends on which country you are in. In England it is not the same as in University, you can sleep over night on campus and live there and in College you go home. In uni, you study different things on harder levels so overall the answer is no they are not the same. hope this helps ;)
