Decent apartment, mediocre building

The apartment overall is comparable in size and location to Kellogg vis-a-vis some of the pricier buildings. The cost is unbeatable. The building though is not as nice as the pricier buildings and management has not devoted enough resources to keeping the apartments up to date (old appliances, need for many maintenance requests). It's livable but I'm not sure whether we'd do it again.

Affordable. Decent Size. Slightly Old. Far From Campus.

Good place if you're looking for something cheap. Lots of Kellogg people live here (but most are married couples). Decent size (~1K sqft) for two people. An old apartment but units are being slowly renovated - my unit received new flooring when we moved in which was nice and makes a huge difference.

Biggest downside is how far it is from campus. About 25-30 min walk. Recommend a bike or taking the bus.

Cheap but good

This is one of the cheapest places in town, but still a good value. Management is responsive with repairs, etc. You get what you pay for, and it won't be as nice as other apartments in Evanston, but fine if you are focused on the bottom line.

Not too fancy and not too expensive

The property is fine, nothing too fancy and you don't pay too much.

Nice and close to campus

The process of moving is was very smooth and the location is great for downtown Evanston. It is a little further away from the Global Hub but really nice and close to restaurants and bars.

All apartments have lots of windows (from about hip-height all the way to the ceiling) so there is tons of natural light.

Also, it is very close to the CTA201 (free for students to get to campus) and the Davis street L & Metra stops.

Spacious, comfortable, and affordable

Management is responsive. Block away from bus that takes you right to campus when it gets cold. Laundry and small gym in the basement. Overall, a good deal, especially if you want to live alone (more affordable than the other luxury apartments).

Cost effective but no frills. Coin op laundry. If something breaks they fix it.

Good value

Have had very few maintenance issues for price, except shower draining, below average dishwasher, coin laundry, no garbage disposal. 5-10 mins from key bars and restaurants but will be 25 mins from Global Hub.

Simple, but great value

It's a simple apartment, but the rent is low and already includes water, heating, internet, and TV. Property manager is very responsive and overall we really like living here.

Downtown Evanston Reviews

461 reviews
Downtown is the place to live. You can walk to get groceries, get to campus within 20 minutes walking, even shorter by bus or quickest by bike. Most people live downtown so social activities revolve around apartment hangs/pregames and local bars.
Love the location of E2. While it's not quite in downtown, it's closer to the Hub than downtown and a 5-10 minute walk from any restaurants/bars
This is a prime location - 5 minutes from E2, Optima Horizons, and McManus. Across from the movie theater and Chili's
Easy access to Target, CVS, Coletivo. Also bus stop that goes to school right across the stret!
Everything you need is close by. 2 minute walk to the L and the metra (train to Chicago)
Kellogg students, NU students and some elderly. Few families. Lots of pets.
Evanston is great. The apartment is near Trader Joes, Jewel Osco, Binny's and Whole Foods (5 min walking). Lots of restaurant options nearby as well as anything you'd need for errands (post office, target, gyms, etc).
Perfect for grad school at Northwestern, but otherwise feels a bit suburban without a booming downtown. There are some good food/bar options, but also a handful of abandoned/empty retail locations -- I'm hoping that means new coffee shops/food venues are coming, but it doesn't look like it just yet.
