1L in North Hyde Park

The apartment is good for the budget-conscious who want to have a parking lot. I was able to reserve a spot in this apartment as early as April, so that's also a plus. The paint job on inside was really unprofessional, but all the appliances worked, so that was good enough for me. Packages will go missing, but the easy remedy is the Amazon locker, UPS point in the Kimbark Plaza. Right next to the 171 and the Hyde Park Express pickup, so ease of access to the University as well. Good space and wood floors make it easy to clean. I don't have a pet, but most residents do, which suggests its good place for the pet owner. Not recommending a pet for 1L success though.

The best I have found in Hyde Park

I have moved three times during law school; once out of school run graduate housing. This apartment is the best one I have found yet. It's biggest problems is the management team, but there is usually at least one competent person around that can solve issues. This means you may have to call multiple times to get an issue taken care of, but the other management companies I have dealt with (TLC and Gradhousing) usually never solve anything-- especially TLC. I have heard of similar experiences with Mac properties. These apartments were recently refurbished and look good. Great views of the city in north-facing apartments above the 7th floor. Also, it is right behind the 53th Street shopping and restaurant area-- the main hub in Hyde Park.

Grad Student Housing - UChicago

It's cheap in both senses of the word, but allowing pets (for free!!!!) was what was most important for me. Pretty good management, no real problems yet (except mail thieves).

Great value! But heaters are radiators and they work a little too well

Graduate Student Housing

Unsafe apartment building with multiple break-ins, thefts, and a mugging in the lobby. Management was unresponsive for months. Ultimately they promised to post security and install a camera. However, they did neither of these things.

Hyde Park Reviews

The convenience of getting to campus cannot be beat. I feel relatively safe as a young woman here. I have never been robbed thus far. Thankfully there are lots of police officers. I get my groceries at hyde park produce and whole foods, which are both pretty convenient. The 172 is great. I just wish it ran later at night for late classes.
Great neighborhood. 53rd street is very safe. Security at every corner and University buses run up and down it all day. Also very close to many food/grocery options.

You may a premium for the amenities/convenience, but excellent location if you’re okay with bus commute or biking
It's not the first place I would have liked to live, but it's closest to the university. The biggest drawbacks are that there are no traditional grocery stores or affordable food options. It is nice to be close to the lake and promontory point.
Hyde Park is great to be in for 1L since you'll need to be at the law school *all the time.* It's charming, but really there's not a whole lot going on here. The lack of good restaurants is really brutal.
Close to campus, lots of restaurants. Not super close to grocery stores anymore, but not too bad. Lots of beautiful trees and old brownstones, not too crowded, housing tends to be very affordable.
Plenty of restaurants and shops. I've rarely felt unsafe, but of course, I've heard about other people's negative experiences with safety in the area.
I live five minutes from Whole Foods, Target, CVS, Dunkin Donuts, Starbucks, the 2 bus, the 172 bus, etc. Everything is within walking distance.
Kinda isolated from Chicago's social scene and cooler neighborhoods, but very convenient at least. Easy to focus in first year.
