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.

Adequate value for price

For the price, it's a decent quality apartment. Not very modern, but few complaints and maintenance issues besides shower occasionally not draining, below average dishwasher, and coin laundry. Great proximity to restaurants and bars in downtown Evanston (5-10 minutes). Will be longer walk to Global Hub (25 mins).

Great value for the money

The exterior and hallways of 1575 Oak leave something to be desired, but the renovated, sunny units are wonderful. Pros: affordable, lots of sunlight, spacious, responsive maintenance team, very close to CTA, Metra & downtown evanston, Cons: 15-20 minute walk from Jake, old radiator heating, coin-operated laundry, poor amenities
