No, there is no MP needed. As there are several distinct objects used for worshiping, it would even 
be wrong.
Thus you can tag the campus complex with landuse=religious, and the individual worshiping places 
with amenity=place_of_worship. You could even add description=* to explain their individual purpose, 
and building=* if it is a building.
