Independent student magazine Izlez (Exit) published photo galleries originally posted by students Dena Miladinoska  and Kristina Ivanova  [mk] of the state-run dorm for medical students at the University of Saints Cyril and Methodius in Skopje. The students posted the photographs of the desolate living conditions in an attempt to incite improvement of these conditions, similar to the initiative started several weeks before by the student residents of the Goce Delchev student dorm  in Skopje.
Во меѓувреме, студентската населба „Невена Георгиева-Дуња“, лоцирана во кругот на универзитетските клиники во Скопје и попозната како „Медицинар“, останува нем сведок на несреќниот студентски живот во земјата. Ако не сте знаеле, неминовно да се спомене, секој студент месечно издвојува три илјади денари за сместувањето во „Медицинар“. Што се добива за тие пари?
In the meantime, the student quart “Nevena Georgieva – Dunja,” located within the campus of university clinics in Skopje and better known as “Medicinar” remains a mute witness to unfortunate college life in Macedonia. A little known but unavoidable fact is that each student pays a rent of 3.000 Denars (50 euro or 67 US dollars) per month in “Medicinar.” What do they get for their money?

In Skopje's “Medicinar” students not only have to do their laundry manually, they have to do it in what were once paint buckets.
