Yeah, that's fricken creepy. Even though I can see a practical use for it... "I wonder what the kid is doing in there..." but if you turn the handle to see, they'll stop being quiet and leaving you alone and come bother you instead. lol. That way you can check without risking that!
But yes, still totally creepy. Makes me think of a dirty old peeping Tom renting out his rooms to young uni students... and having a good old creep. EW!

When I was younger I would pop out my flyscreen at night and go swimming by myself. My bedroom window opened up right into the pool area. My parents never knew until I told them in my teens. We moved out of that house when I was in grade 3 so I was wayyyy too young to be swimming by myself. Bet if my parents caught me I would have had a lock on my window Lol

My neighbours have locks on all their doors - to every room nearly - their DS is autistic and can be pretty destructive if unsupervised..... it might be something simple like that....
I was advised by two seperate parenting/sleep professional organisations to put a lock on my DD door to lock her in at night (she gets up). Needless to say I didnt do it.

my nans house have locks on what use to be the kids rooms. dont know why but now she locks them coz she feels safer. all our bedroom doors have knob locks. kids need a chair or something if they want to open them so its more so to keep them out not in. lol

Not creepy really depending on why the locks were there. But definitely unsafe if there was a person/child sleeping in that room. What happens if there's a fire and you can't find the key?
(That's obviously not the main concern for me but it's definitely one that springs to mind heh).

The house might also have been used for family daycare. I know a lot of FDC providers have locks on the outside of their doors so the children can't get it but the other family members can.
