Not explicitly a campus, but general inspiration may be found here: http://help.openstreetmap.org/questions/6894/exceptionally-well-mapped-areas-examples

Well, in fact you will find links such as http://map.umd.edu/map/ reading that thread.

Cambridge (wiki, OSM) is probably worth a look at, as David Earl's doing an "official" (for the Uni) OSM-based remap - and very nice it looks too.
