    Ходить в университет = быть студентом ?

    По-английски вопрос "Do you go to the university?" может означить "Are you a student at the university?"

    Интересно, так ли и по-русски? То есть, может ли «Ты ходишь в университет?» означить «Студент ли ты?»

    Да, это правда.

    Ты ходишь в школу? = Ты школьник?

    Ты ходишь в институт? = Ты уже достаточно взрослый, окончил школу и стал студентом? = Ты не теряешь времени даром и поступил в институт, то есть ты студент?

    All that means what you said.

    If you go to the Uni you are a student.

    There is an old joke:

    -Вова, вставай, в школу пора!
    -Ну, маам, я не хочу.
    -Вова, ты должен идти в школу...ты же директор!

    -Vova? get up, it's time to go to the school!
    -Oh mom, I don't want to go!
    - But you have to go...since you are the principal!

    First, you should have used either "значить" or "означать".
    "Означить" is an old-fashioned verb and it means "mark, label, signify, be a sign of, outline".

    Now, yes, «Ты ходишь в университет?» can mean "Are you a student at the university?"
    But it can also mean "Do you visit the university regularly (or do you skip lessons)?"
    Moreover, it can probably mean something else in a certain context, for instance, if you ask a worker who has to go to the university in his or her line of work (not for studying).
    Please correct my mistakes if you can, especially article usage.

    Leof, "директор (школы)" is "headmaster" or "principal" and not "director"

    I suspected director is a wrong word, but nothing came to mind.

    And? yes - as always the context does matter.
    Я так думаю.

    Some more corrections if you don't mind:
    - But you must_go...since you are the principal!
    but nothing came to mind.

    "Что" is redundant here.
    May I ask what exactly you didn't know?

    Typically, in (American) English, the phrase 'with the help of' is preferred over 'help from x'. Neither is incorrect, it's just a matter of word choice.

    Thanks for that info.
    Actually, I'm not a native English speaker. I just looked up the examples in my dictionary and tried to correct this original phrase:

    "edited with help of Vadim"

    Не проблема...at least you added the article for Leof. It must be nice not always having to write/type 'a', 'an', 'the' and such.

    Oh, I love the dictionary examples, I use them too...только по-русский, конечно.

    только по-русски, конечно.
    This time the letter "й" is superfluous
    I'd say:

    For me the question "Ты ходишь в университет?" doesn't mean "Ты студентка?"/"Ты учишься в университете?"

    If someone ask me this question, I'd understand it like "Ты ходишь в университет", in other words "Ты не пропускаешь занятия?", "Ты посещаешь лекции?"
    It is supposed that a person who asked me, knows precisely that I study at the university.
    If someone unacquainted with me ask me so, my first reaction would be: "В какой университет? Откуда он знает, что я учусь в университете?"

    As for the question "Ты ходишь в школу?" - so yes, it is the same as "Ты учишься в школе?"/"Ты школьник?"
    But "Ты ходишь в университет?" sounds strange for me.
    In Russian, all nationalities and their corresponding languages start with a lower-case letter.

    Спасибо за это, только одно ты забыла: как правильно спросить!

    Я бы спросил вот так: Ты учишься?
    Как это звучит?
