製年照康清大 

It is written on the side of a large floor vase. Some type of university or artist? Would this vase be newer or antique?

You've got it backwards, but it purports to be a Kangxi reign mark. You can assume it's fake.

清大 as a university! I like your thinking. But it should be read right to left: 大清康熙年制, 'produced during the reign of the Kangxi emperor of the Great Qing dynasty'. That doesn't necessarily mean the vase is really from that period, there is a lot of fake ceramics around.
