Why not ask your question on the new OpenStreetMap Community Forum?

How should I map a university that's only mad up of one building? It's already on OSM as both a building and an amenity, and I'm not sure if it's correct or if I should change it in any way.

It doesn't really have a yard or an area around the building to tag either.

I think the current tagging is fine. It's the same way we'd tag any feature that occupies an entire building. For example, a standalone restaurant would be amenity=restaurant + building=yes, because the one object is both of these things.
