Residential Review Board (RRB)
The Residential Review Board (RRB) is a body of students assigned to adjudicate potential community violations which occur in the residence halls. These violations are those that do not violate the Student Code of Conduct but do violate Housing Policy.
The RRB serves as a peer review system for students who have been documented for an alleged University Housing policy violation. The main focus of the RRB is to enhance students understanding of their rights and responsibilities as members of a community, ensure residential communities allow for positive student engagement, and that communities are conducive to living and learning.
Join in the university effort to conserve energy by participating in your hall’s recycling program and by using energy wisely. Turning off lights throughout the building and keeping air conditioning thermostats at a reasonable level can help us protect the environment and lower energy costs. Do not leave water running and try to limit your length of time in the shower. sustainability.asu.edu/
