Think Your Student Dorm is Bad? It Could Be MUCH Worse.

You won’t believe it, but these photos were taken in a student housing complex where 1200 students currently live as we speak. Before you complain about your own dorm, consider how bad things could be…

This is the “Goce Delcev” student dormitory in Skopje, Macedonia. It houses 1200+ students every year.

Leaky pipes are a common occurrence in this dorm, leading to floor damage like you see here…

Imgur

These notes in the reception area translate to read, “There is no warm water. The problem is being fixed,” and “Go take a shower at your boyfriends’ places!”

Imgur

Many hallways have no lights, and leaky pipes everywhere…

Imgur

Imgur

Mold grows on the walls in the hallway from all the moisture…

Imgur

That radiator you see? Doesn’t work.

Imgur

Students line up early for lunch time…

Imgur

The cafeteria can only feed 25% of the students.

Imgur

They serve the same food every day: pasta, potatoes, chicken, steaks, and sausages.

Bonus: poorly-peeled potatoes.

This dish comes with lettuce, “adding extra nutrition.”

Imgur

The optional buffet has even less food than the cafeteria…

Imgur

Students get coupons to spend in this store, but it’s usually empty.

This is a stray dog sleeping on a comfy couch in the entrance to the dorm.

This is the inside of an average dorm bedroom.

Imgur

This bedroom has water leaking from the ceiling…

Imgur

Laundry is hung up to dry inside…

Imgur

This mattress was actually replaced after 5 months of requests.

Imgur

Some rooms have their own private bathroom.

Imgur

But I wouldn’t call it lucky to have this bathroom attached to your bedroom…

Imgur

This is one of the better bathrooms…

Imgur

The showers in blocks A and B. Only one of the stalls works.

Imgur

The common showers…

Imgur

Another common bathroom…

Imgur

Water flows down the elevator shaft. One elevator detached with a student inside. He sustained minor injuries and trauma.

Imgur

This is the sink where you are supposed to wash your face in the morning…

Imgur

And here’s one last bonus photo, created by students who want to draw attention to their living conditions.

Imgur

Wow… And I thought my student dorm was bad when I was in college. These photos bring a new meaning to the word disgusting. Can you imagine what would happen if a college in the USA had conditions even remotely resembling this?

Next time someone complains about their dorm, just show them this.
