Great Location

Great location, great space, huge living room and kitchen. Only con is that the building is inhabited mostly by senior citizens who are intolerant to noise and even small gatherings.

Great value

It's an older building, but has some charm. Quality of the unit will vary a bit based on the individual owner, but all are a decent size. No central air (window units) and baseboard heaters make for challenging temperature regulation, but it's not a huge deal. You can get a large apartment for significantly less than other buildings in Evanston. Parking is included, which is also a plus if you have a car.

Large, fully furnished bedroom in a quiet building

As a fully furnished apartment, this unit is perfect for one person or a couple who either don't have many belongings, or don't want to bother with moving them. One bedroom with two full bathrooms, the apartment comes with a pull out couch, two love seats, dining room set, every possible kitchen utensil (pots, pans, plates, silverware, etc) you can imagine, large flat screen TV, work desk, printer/fax, etc. Includes stove top, oven, microwave, fridge, freezer and access to laundry machines on the first floor. Unit owner is a great guy and accommodating. Great location and a secure building

"On a Residential Street..."

For the amount of rent I'm paying the apartment more than satisfies my need for space and safety! I live on a beautiful tree-lined block two blocks away from the lake and it's an easy 10 minute walk to campus. Although my building doesn't have any special amenities there's lots of closet space and huge living room!

Great bang for your buck

Hinman House is definitely an underrated housing option for Kellogg students. Each unit is a little bit different, but I live with a roommate in an updated and super spacious 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom apartment. The first comment visitors make is always about how huge our apartment is; it's definitely the biggest one I've seen in Evanston. Since this is a condo building, it's pretty quiet and well-maintained. There's no doorman, but we have a secured entry (key fob) and an on-site maintenance guy that's pretty responsive. The location is pretty convenient too. We are a 5-10 minute walk away from most bars and restaurants, and about a 12-minute walk (on a beautiful tree-lined street) from the Jake. Another plus is that we were able to sign a 23-month lease at a great price, which is not always the case with some of the other more popular buildings. All in all, it's a great building at a great price with everything you need. No regrets about choosing this place over more expensive buildings with amenities I'd probably be too busy use.
Pros: Huge windows (lots of light); huge floor plan; lots of closet/storage space; close to bars/restaurants; < 10 minute walk to Trader Joes; < 5 minute walk to the lake; garage parking; great value.
Cons: No amenities (i.e. gym, pool, doorman); small community of Kellogg students in building; wall-unit air conditioning (no central a/c); electric stove.

Huge apartment, good deal, very annoying management

Apartment is huge (everyone is always impressed by the size of our living room and master bedroom). Very good location in downtown Evanston and with the NU Shuttle Bus stop just around the corner. However, the management of the building is very annoying and we had several troubles/difficulties with them regarding move-in fees etc.

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.
