There are two routes you could possibly go to obtain this information. The local fire department od the Municipal code enforcement office.
Thank you for bringing this one to our attention....We often get questions about the definition of a bedroom but we haven't seen one devoted to the issue of safety.

You should look into that first, and then call your landlord or the property manager and see what they say. It is a safety issue- potentially.
Thanks, and good luck,
Bedrooms do not have to have 2 exits, actually many do not. There are specific rules for bedrooms below grade. (lower levels, basements)
Otherwise many people consider a room to be a bedroom even if it does not have a window. There are many rules and it depends on whether who you are; the fire department, city (inspectional services), the buyer, the owner, the Real estate professional... you get the picture. And definitely from region to region there are many expectations that may not be met, depending on where you come.
Some properties are 100 years old in Boston and some have been built in the past few years. Rules are different for each.
I suggest connecting with a buyers agent, and experienced one will make sure the value is in the property.
Good luck, it is very exciting buying property.
