Please map all buildings and roads. If can easily tell which buildings are within the college bounds, just map the buildings within the college. If you cannot easily tell, just map all buildings within the square.
Buildings should be tagged with "building=yes". Roads entirely within the college should be tagged highway=residential. Roads through the college exist already, and do not need to be amended.
Please use DG Premium imagery. Align the imagery with existing features before you map. (Do not move existing features to match DG Premium, unless there's a compelling reason to do so.)
If you are using JOSM, please add all new features to the College relations. If you are using iD, please add "buildings need to be added to college relation" to the comments box.
Note: Because of colleges are spread throughout Ghana, they are not easy to see on the task manager map. You can either select a task at random, or you can use this overpass query http://overpass-turbo.eu/s/qkn to see where the colleges are, and then zoom in on the area before you select the task.
