This study aimed to investigate the quality of the rooftop rainwater harvesting (RRWH) and to treat it for clean water supply alternative of Graha Rektorat building at State University of Malang, Indonesia. Different combinations of zeolite and activated carbon were used as filter media to treat the RRWH. Several parameters have tested to investigate the quality of RRWH based on Permenkes RI No. 416 / MENKES / PER / IX / 1990. Most of the quality of the RRWH met clean water and drinking water standard. However, there were three parameters have to be reduced and required further treatment. The results showed T4 reduced TDS and coliform bacteria by 37% and 36%, while T5 eliminated organic substances (KMnO4) for 35%.
