It looks like we are dumping Google Maps for OSM and I’m just getting started on learning how to edit OSM. I was wondering if there was an official building type called “university” as opposed to “school.” All I can find is the Amenity called “university.” I have our campus buildings set as the “generic building” type, but I was curious if I can add or create more university specific building types like a “dorm.”
Thanks. I’m sure I’ll have more questions as I get deeper into this.
Note that the list of values is not closed. Anyone is free to create new values but it’s always better to check what is already documented in the wiki (see the ‘search’ bar on top), and if not, already in use (for instance, the stat tool taginfo.openstreetmap.org can help). See also building=restaurant or building=dormitory.
