As far as I know, "university" would be a better translation for "college". A faculty is a department of a university whereas college is an entire learning place with all its departments.

Correct indeed, yet when we actually talk we refer to college as facultate. We never really use universitate except in their actual names.

Ok, good to know. By the way, may I ask how you generate italics in your answers?
