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 has everything you need. E2 is walkable to campus, a Target, and plenty of restaurants, as well as Metra and L stations to get to Chicago. Right across the street is a Subway, a Thai restaurant, and a pizza place, plus there’s a 7-Eleven about a block away, so you’re very close to options if you need food in a pinch.
Close to downtown Evanston but a bit far from E2/the reserve. One of closest apartments to Trader Joes/Whole Foods/Jewel Osco while also being close to campus. Very close to the lake!
Downtown Evanston has everything you need from a downtown including grocery stores, restaurants, and convenience stores.
Downtown Evanston is great - plenty of great food within walking distance, Metra and El trains right nearby, a really nice place to be. Only downside is it's far from school and the only truly walkable grocery store is a Whole Foods, which can get expensive. Overall, wouldn't want to live elsewhere though.
Close to grocery stores and restaurants. Very easy access to Lake Michigan as well!
There isn't much to do here, but that's true pretty much everywhere in Evanston. We're in walking distance to all of "downtown" Evanston, so restaurants / fast food / subway, etc. It's a slightly longer walk than desired to Kellogg, but that's fine.
The apartment is central to downtown and is walking distance to most bars, restaurants, shops, beach, etc. Evanston is a bit of a sleepy town (especially during the pandemic...I've been told it was much more vibrant pre-pandemic).
I live just south of the main downtown area, and it's the perfect intersection of being close to the action but also a bit removed when you want some quiet. I like being a in a more residential pocket, so there is slightly less foot traffic and really nice areas to walk around with a dog, etc.
