In brief: Not likely...

Unfortunately a gluten-free diet will not likely cure or alleviate ulcerative colitis symptoms.
Celiac disease or gluten sensitivity is a separate condition and responds to a gluten-free diet. Gluten is by no means an essential part of your diet, so if you would like to try a few weeks of avoidance and see how you feel it couldn't hurt.
