Expert Answer:

There is no difference between the terms gravity and universal gravity, they imply the same thing.

Occasionally gravity may be used to mean the earth's gravity, and universal gravity may be taken to be generally refering to gravitational force of any other planet, star, galaxy. So universal gravity is may be used to imply that Newton's law of universal gravity is one which not only applies to the earth and bound objects, but it's universal and applies stars, galaxies, planets.
