Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.
If the school policy does not give an RA permission to enter any room and in fact says they cannot enter without permission, then this was a violation of the University policy and actually is grounds to sue the RA and university for trespassing and invasion of privacy. It is also grounds to appeal the decision and I would consider doing both, suing the RA personally and the school for invasion of privacy, breach of contract and trespassing, as well as filing your appeal as instructed on the findings sheet you attached.
