We're not giving it up

I love this place and I'm betting property values in Hyde Park will continue to rise, so it's probably a neutral-to-good investment.

It's cheap and everything works

The University Building at 5107 S Blackstone is pretty much what you'd expect. Rent is as good as you'll find anywhere, and all the utilities are included (electricity surcharge applies if you want to install a window AC unit but that's it). There are no extra amenities on site, but you're not paying for that. The building is also very quiet--mostly couples and some families with young children, but you'd never know that based on noise.

The building is old, but not run-down. Just a bit shabby. Everything works fine however, and gets fixed right away if it breaks. Good plumbing and insulation, gas stove/oven. There have been no issues with building security, break-ins, or stolen packages as far as I know. The surrounding areas have had relatively few muggings/etc compared with the rest of Hyde Park as well.

The location is fine for being in Hyde Park. It's right on the 172 bus line to get to campus, and it's also on/near the 2, 6, and Metra to get downtown quickly. The main shopping/restaurant area in Hyde Park is 2 blocks south at 53rd Street so that is convenient as well.

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.
