Can a landlord rent a bedroom without a window in PA?

A national leasing company has bought out an old landlord at my university. Can these new owners or any landlord rent a room as a bedroom that does not have a window?

In Pa a room cannot be considered a bedroom unless it has two exits and a closet.  The second exit can be a window, however it has to be easily accessible without crawling up on something, and accommodate the size of an adult without being obstructed.

If  you are concerned you can contact your local zoning authority to make a complaint.

I'd be very concerned living in that situation.  In the event of a fire the person occupying that room could be trapped.
