What does "Universidad al Colegio" mean? Because I thought colegio and university were different things. However, I just encountered the quoted phrase above while translating an article. I don't understand it.

Thanks! :)

I am not sure if I'm thinking the right thing here since I don't have any context but for example here in Colombia universities have some programs for students in high school (colegio) so they can see which programs the university offers and they see a little bit more about how everything works inside a university. They also offer sometimes courses and activities for those students. Those programs are often called like that, you share some of the university structure and possibilities to high school students, you take the university to high school, you take "la universidad al colegio".

Si pudieses poner el link de la traducción que estabas haciendo sería de bastante ayuda, no es una frase clara ni "común". Debe ser algo con un contexto definido con seguridad.

En 1552 el Papa Julio III concedió por privilegio pontificio el rango de Universidad al Colegio.
In 1552 Pope Julius III granted by papal privilege the rank of University to the College. "[el rango de Universidad] al Colegio" is what puts it in context.
