Well, in my country, these are classified as a different landuse and not
commercial. Please see this land use map as an example:

Hospitals, schools, universities, and civic/admin facilities (such as
municipal or village townhalls) are classed as "institutional" landuse. So
for my country, landuse=civic_admin (or similar) would make sense.
