i am a university student and live in a three storey house with three others. Should each of our bedrooms have an escape ladder fitted? I am not sure how we would all get out as we can all lock our rooms.

An escape window may be a requirement depending on the age of the property but not a ladder and surely if you lock your doors then it would be easily enough to open them to escape in case of fire. If you are asking is the means of escape satisfactory then a full physical survey would be required but you could check it out yourself by using "HOUSING – FIRE SAFETY Guidance on fire safety provisions for certain types of existing housing" to get some ideas.
