All I can say is that I waited until I was done university, and even waited a few years after that actually, before getting a dog.
Between school, working to afford basic living, joining clubs and organizations, and also wanting to party like most college/university students do, I knew that I wouldn't be a responsible pet owner because I was too selfish at the time.
I'm not saying don't do it, I'm just saying that a dog may limit you from being able to experience some of the important social aspects of being a college/university student. So be honest with yourself in terms of what sort of college/university experience you want for yourself.
