I am not sure if this "works". Have you been looking at current values for
the "residential" key? These are the ones with more than 100 uses:
There are already at least 3 different systems (one for rural / urban and
one for the building typology (detached / single_family / apartments) and
one for gated communities (what's this, socio-economic aspect of urbanism
maybe?). Now you seem to be adding yet another one, "university" for
student's appartments (not really self explaining IMHO).
I would use a specific tag for the building typology (e.g.
building=dormitory or student_accomodation or similar if the building was
built as such) and another one if it is actually used as such (e.g. under
the amenity key as suggested by Tobias).
I don't see this as a case for adding a specific landuse value, but I do
agree that refining the generic "residential" into more differentiated
values by subtagging might be a general option (regardless of this
particular case of student accomodation), e.g. differentiate according to
structure (open / closed, not sure about the precise term in English, for
reference see these two pictures:
open (=space between buildings)
closed (buildings without space between them):
the above distinction is still quite generic, both of these types also have
a lot of subtypes (ideally, then there are mixed cases).
