If I am a university student, can I say: I go to the gym every Wednesday after school.

Can I say I'm still in school, or I go to school very day?

What I am asking is: if the word school refers to university as well?

Yes, absolutely. At least in the U.S. I can't tell you about other places.

(p.s. - I assume it's a typo, but "I go to school every day.")
Hi,

What I am asking is: if the word school refers to university as well?

Generally speaking, I think the answer is 'yes' in N.America, and 'No' in Britain.

However, again generally speaking, I think the usual construction is something like 'Harvard is a good school', but not 'Every day after school, the Harvard law students all go to the gym'. In other words, there are some idiomatic considerations as to how you use the term 'school'.

Best wishes, Clive

Thank you both, G.G. and Clive. But in Britain, how a uninversity student say: 'I go to school every day'?

When I was in that situation, if I had to describe my day to someone, I'd say things like I go to lectures every day or I study every day or I go to a tutorial every day.

Thank you a lot. Clive.

I'm sorry - I got caught up in the last part of your question and forgot about your example. If you are a university student, you would say "I go to the gym every day after class" and "I have classes every day."

I was thinking about "where do you go to school?" or "what school did you go to" as applying to universities as well as other schools. I'm sorry if my hasty answer caused any confusion.
No problem, Grammar Geek. Thank you for coming back to add such information.
