On the internet I usually see study used with objects. For example:

I (do) study literature at university.

Can study be used without an object, as in the following examples?

I study at the university.

Do you study at the university?

Are these sentences grammatically correct?

    As any dictionary (such as this one) will tell you, study may be used intransitively - see definitions 1.2 and 1.3. – StoneyB on hiatus May 18 '14 at 18:17

Study is a verb and can be used transitively or intransitively.

I study.

I study English.

I study at the university.

You can also add "do" which is also a verb.

I do study.

I do study English.

I do study at the university.

Do you study at the university? Yes, I do.

All are correct.
