Don't Live Here

The apartment seemed like a steal, but I wouldn't pick it again. Elevators are always broken. Had a gas leak early in the year. And now it's being treated for potential bed bugs.

Great downtown location

Older building priced accordingly, right by Five and Dime/Taco Diablo. Not currently many Kellogg students living here, but there are a bunch at building across the street (1575). Maintenance staff is prompt

"Vintage Apt"

Definitely in the true spirit of the phrase "Vintage Apt" - it's an old building without great amenities. Carpeted floors, tiny kitchens that have not been renovated in 10+ years and old piping everywhere. However, it is cheap and probably one of the cheapest option in Evanston. It's location is pretty close to downtown but rather far from Jacobs Center.

Dont live here

1570 Oak, while convenient to downtown, is NOT a good place to live while at Kellogg. It is a bit of a walk (~20 mins which feels worse in the winter). Shuttle is closeby. Building management is not good. No amenties. Building is old, no covered parking. Utils (except cable/internet) included. No pets allowed

Downtown Evanston Reviews

385 reviews
All in all ideal downtown Evanston location. Very convenient for public transportation to Chicago, next door to local favorite Bennison's (love the late night smell of donuts baking), and walking distance to plenty of bars, restaurants, and stores. Once the Target goes up by Sherman Plaza and we have an alternative to Whole Foods close by this will be perfect.
McManus is located right next to Evanston downtown, so everything (restaurants, bars, groceries) is very close by. It's also right next to Northwestern campus (~15-18 minutes to Kellogg Global Hub by foot), which helps quite a lot, esp. in the winter when you'd want to keep your commute as short as possible.
We are across from the movie theater and Chilis. In our local neighborhood, we have shopping, events, bars, restaurants, and are a close walk for the Tuesday night parties. The Frost Bite stops by our front door, and both Davis Street stations are a block away or less.
I don't think there is any other place to live if you are a Kellogg student. Almost all the students live in this neighborhood, it's where all the restaurants are, and near the University and the train. The only place in Evanston that doesn't feels like a suburb.
Good central location in Evanston
Close to bars and other apartment buildings that other Kellogg students live in
~25 minute walk to the Global Hub
Evanston itself is just a little boring - no night life
Very close to Davis Metra station and Purple Line
The neighborhood is great and it is centrally located. There is grass around for walking dogs and the movie theater and restaurants are close by. It is somewhat far from the new Kellogg building, but most everything is now.
Great, quiet neighbourhood. Lots of students around obviously (mainly grad students in this area).

Pricey, for sure. Not a lot of cheap grocery/food options within walking distance.

The bar scene is mediocre at best.
Most Kellogg students live in downtown Evanston, everything is walking distance, and the building is a block away from the Intercampus bus stop, and 7 min walk distance from Davis station, which is very convenient.
