Face the Lake

If you can, get an apartment that faces the lake because I think it's brighter and more sunlight. Also apartments above level 6 you get a view, instead of facing the Wholefoods carpark.
Pro's:
- generally pretty quick with maintenance
- apartments are big and reasonably priced for what you get (vs E2 for example)

Con's:
- management sucks a bit - they turn the heating on really high as soon as it hits October even if it's warm. And the heating is pro-rata to every apartment so you have to pay for it even if everyone is complaining it's too hot
- they charge you for everything like if you get locked out it's $50 (even though the doorman just needs to come up to let you in they have spare keys on site)

Not Ideal

In my opinion, the reason a Kellogg student lives at the Park Evanston is because they want to pay a bit less than some of the other buildings and have a fairly decent location right next to the Whole Foods. The issue with that plan (which was what I had thought I was doing) is that the building management is horrendous. The building is old and out of date, the people who work there aren't helpful, and the cost jumps up aggressively after your first year so that if you plan to live there for 2 years you will end up paying a similar amount to the other buildings. I highly recommend staying away.

Great property

Excellent place to live, gym very decent and useful during the winter season. One of the closest apartments to the global hub. Next door to whole foods which is a blessing.

Ideal Location!

Perfect location right by the Whole Foods and close to most of the bars in Evanston. The building is a little more rundown than some of the others, with carpeted floors. Management is generally very responsive and friendly.

Great location, fantastic views

We chose our apartment primarily for the convenient location (right next to Whole Foods on Chicago ave), tons of sunlight and views of lake Michigan (floors 7 and above).

Pros: responsive management, spacious layout, friendly doormen, decent rent price (for Evanston standards), no issues with elevator maintenance or wifi dropping, lavish building parties each season

Cons: Carpet everywhere but bathrooms and kitchen, heating/cooling utilities split by floor usage, outdated kitchen

Solid Building, Horrendous Management

Building is convenient, good views, nice units, functional appliances etc.

That said, the building management seems to exist only to spite its tenants. They crank the heat in the winter and charge everyone seemingly randomly for over heating the building, and respond only grudgingly. If the DMV could be a building management, it'd be the Park Evanston.

Park Evanston Review

I've been very happy with the Park Evanston. While the building is somewhat dated, you can't beat the location - it's a convenient walk to campus and steps away from everything in downtown Evanston.

Downtown Evanston Reviews

281 reviews
All in all ideal downtown Evanston location. Very convenient for public transportation to Chicago, next door to local favorite Bennison's (love the late night smell of donuts baking), and walking distance to plenty of bars, restaurants, and stores. Once the Target goes up by Sherman Plaza and we have an alternative to Whole Foods close by this will be perfect.
I don't think there is any other place to live if you are a Kellogg student. Almost all the students live in this neighborhood, it's where all the restaurants are, and near the University and the train. The only place in Evanston that doesn't feels like a suburb.
Good central location in Evanston
Close to bars and other apartment buildings that other Kellogg students live in
~25 minute walk to the Global Hub
Evanston itself is just a little boring - no night life Very close to Davis Metra station and Purple Line
Most Kellogg students live in downtown Evanston, everything is walking distance, and the building is a block away from the Intercampus bus stop, and 7 min walk distance from Davis station, which is very convenient.
Pros: Great location near key Kellogg hangouts like World of Beer, Nevins, Five and Dime, Prairie Moon, etc. Also convenient to Bennison's Bakery! Great for late nights- can get home in < 5 minutes without ubering. Also near both Metra and L- ideal if you plan to spend some of your time in downtown Chicago.

Cons: Long walk from the Global hub. Closest grocery store is Whole Foods, a bit of a hike to TJ's and Jewel.
The apartment is at the center of downtown Evanston, so it is convenient in all purposes like dining, drinking, shopping, etc. Also, the CTA and Metra stations are right next to the apartment.
Evanston is cute, but it’s definitely a suburb. Lots of chain restaurants and those that aren’t chains will not impress those coming from bigger cities with great food scenes.
Slightly farther from GLUB than most places but it's been manageable. Takes me 20 mins to get to GLUB via walking. Like how it is closer to Jewel Osco and Trader Joes which is convenient when you have non-student JV at home. Also very close to Dempster street stop.
