I applied for application in Fall 2021, but have decided to reapply for 2022 entry and take a gap year. I am currently wondering whether I should 'Decline' my firm offer on UCAS or if I should withdraw my application from that university? Is one preferable to the other? I will be reapplying to my current firmed uni, and am hoping to get an offer there again as a backup, so which one should I do?
Thanks in advance.

You can do either. It doesn’t matter which.

PQ Okay, thank you. Also, would you happen to know the chances of receiving an offer again from the university I firmed but will decline/withdraw from?

You could simply 'defer' your current offer to a 2022 start - just ask the University. This is usually very straightforward and just means you are delaying entry for a year - everything else stays the same - and you dont need to reapply.

Sorry, perhaps I haven't worded my situation properly. I have a firm offer for UCL but would like to reapply because I am keen to get into either Oxford or LSE. When I reapply, I would like to maximize my chances of getting an offer from UCL again (as a backup), in case I don't make either of my desired offers. That's why I am wondering if either declining or withdrawing is the better option, as I don't want to discourage UCL from offering me a place again.

It wont make any difference to UCL - honestly.
They get thousands of applications and dont have time micro-manage to that extent.
Decline the place, close your application down for this year, and get on with your summer.

The only thing that would put UCL off is if you mess them around, hanging on to a place and then changing your mind multiple times.
Withdrawing/declining PROMTPLY and before results day is fine.
