I am using mapnik to directly render a map using xml sheet.

I downloaded world boundaries, created the mapnik stylesheet from wiki page, and ran the python code which created a world image :

enter image description here

Now I want to create one of my college.

Would .osm.pbf format work to include its data?

The world picture is rendered from a shapefile. For detailed maps, you need to put the openstreetmap data into a postgis database using osm2pgsql (not osmosis!).

http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Mapnik can lead you to further instructions how to set up the database properly.
