They have two different meanings.
What are you doing with yourself now that you are out of high school?
"I'm going to University".
Where did you say you were going after breakfast?
"I'm going to the University".
'going to University', as a phrase, usually refers to University in a general sense.
'going to THE University' generally refers to the actual physical place, the specific University, at one specific place.
It's sort of similar to the difference between "I'm going to work" and "I'm going to the office". Work is just... work, in a general sense. The office is the specific place. And people use it even if they don't work in an office.1
