On Campus Vs. On-Campus?

If I am right now inside the campus, I should say I am On-Campus to let everyone knows about where I arrived a second ago?

why On campus is not right, in this situation?

Update:

what's the difference in the meaning of On Campus vs. On-Campus

    No capitals, those aren't proper nouns. 

    If some you're taking to on the phone asks where you are, you'd say: I'm on campus --- your location.

    If some asks you where you got your backpack, you'd say:  At the on-campus store -- it's an adjective.

    the capitals are wrong because it is not a name

    "on campus" is a description of location

    "on-campus" is an adjective
