Comfortable, central, cost-effective

Tons of space, comfortable, sunny, close to all the downtown Evanston bars and restaurants. The apartment is no frills but maintained very well. Management is much more diligent and responsive than anywhere else I've lived. There's also tons of Kellogg students in the building which is nice. Shuttle stops right outside apartment. Close to both Whole Foods and Trader Joe's/Jewel Osco.

Great value for a 1 bedroom apt with covered parking. Older building, but management is very responsive. Good location in Evanston. Lots of Kellogg students live in the building.

Great value!

Pros

- Very small gym (just a few treadmills)
- Carpet floor
- Sometimes you smell weed in the building, but you can block it off by sealing the vents in your room

Great Value

1500 Chicago is a great value - for those more cost-conscious students who want to be close to campus and in the heart of downtown, 1500 Chicago is the best option.

Good value for money

The building is old and although the maintenance is good, you can see it in the appliances and the bathroom specially. But the rent is affordable, it is well located and management is very responsive.

Overall very nice experience

Great location and close to everywhere. Affordable and spacious studio, good for living alone. Housing staff is helpful. Newly added gym is useful. Parking space is always available. Able to sublet during summer or exchange.

Great value

A very economical choice. It's also much better than I previously thought. The management is very active. We've just got a new gym downstairs, too.
