Dan S ... The question still remains ... what are you trying to achieve?
Count the number of buildings making up a university, or something else?
In the distant past there were proposals for a much better hierarchy of
'places' where a place like 'University of Cambridge' would have a place
holder, and everything related to that place would be linked as such.
This probably pre-dates relations, but I STILL think that it has a
practical use today. When you select 'university, country' you see a
list of entities with a single entry per, but because it's not 'physical
map information' it's not acceptable to  some :(
