I understand that the RRP rule does not apply to dormitories. Does the rule apply to a unit of student housing made up of two bedrooms, a living room, and kitchen?

Yes.  While the RRP rule does not apply to zero-bedroom housing, the type of housing described is not zero-bedroom housing.  Zero-bedroom housing means a residential dwelling in which the living area is not separated from the sleeping area.  Examples include efficiencies, studio apartments, and dormitory housing.  In the example given, the bedrooms provide sleeping areas that are separate from the living area, so the housing does not meet the definition of zero-bedroom housing and the RRP rule applies.
