    You study in a building or room: I study in a library. But you study at a place of learning.

    Incidentally, if a vowel is followed by a single "s" it's normally long:

    abrasion adhesion erosion confusion

    If a vowel is followed by a double "s" it's normally short:

    compassion compression permission percussion

    You study at a university (of any kind), or a school, or a college. During your time there, you may study in a library, a classroom, or a lecture-hall.
