I would tag the uni roads around here with the same tags I do public 
streets of the same size/type with the addition of appropriate access=* 

The main road through the University is a Secondary, the bulk of the 
rest are Tertiary, with Service or Unclassified where appropriate.  Were 
the main road larger, it would be worth a Primary, but it isn't.
