couldn't this also be "the college"? I know in the UK, college is the same as last two years of high school, but I was taught that la universidad = college/university (ie Dartmouth College, University of California)

University is a body that has the ability to confer degrees. Colleges are institutions that impart education. It is under a university and follows the curriculum devised by the university. A University might have multiple colleges affiliated to it.
