The intention is that amenity=university would be for institutions of higher education and amenity=college for further education. So Trinity College Cambridge or Baliol College Oxford would be amenity=university, but Cambridge Regional College would be amenity=college.

Note that in the UK this tag is for post-secondary education institution: secondary institutions known as "colleges" should be tagged amenity=school.
