Is it wrong to write "ten budynek jest uniwersytet"?

Yes. In such a construction, you need Instrumental for "university". Or alternatively, you can say "Ten budynek to uniwersytet".

If you have any more doubts, you can consult this topic.

So "Ten budynek jest uniwersytetem" should be accepted?

"Ten budynek jest uniwersytetem" is still being rejected.

"Ten budynek jest uniwersytetem" nie jest akceptowane.

I'm removing this sentence, it's kinda nonsensical. It's not very probable for a university to fit inside just one building.
