Could you tell me if I need to use the preposition in or to in the context below?
I've never studied in university, but I have been in college.

I'm aware that when we are talking about out experiences of being in different places, to is used with the present perfect. But, in my context college is not really a place but rather a concept, which makes it hard for me to choose which preposition to use.
