If your college is located in a city or big village, then Jumuah is fardh on you. In this case, you can offer Jumuah salah in your college. And if your college is not located in a city or big village rather it is in a small village, then Jumuah is not fardh on you and it is not necessary for you to go to city to offer Jumuah salah. It is enough if you offer Zuhar salah there with jamah. However, it is better for you if you invite at least two Muftis graduated from Darul Uloom Deoband or Mazahir Uloom Saharanpur to survey the place. After their survey, follow their opinion regarding the starting of Jumuah salah.

Allah knows Best!

Darul Ifta,
Darul Uloom Deoband
