Great Apartment! A little far from campus

3-story walk up building on a quaint, residential neighborhood a little south of downtown Evanston. Close to Trader Joe's and the Dempster L train station... a little bit a hike from campus

Great value, but a little far

The apartment is great - it is updated and an amazing value for what we pay. The distance from downtown Evanston is fairly reasonable and walkable in the warm weather. However, the distance from campus (1.1miles) is not ideal, especially in the winter.

Condo near Nevins

About 1 mile from campus, small building with nice neighbors. Dogs over 35 lbs allowed!

Hardwood floors, new kitchens, washer/dryer, good closet space. We're very happy with it - took us 2 months to find a reasonable place that would accept big dogs!

Since it's home to Northwestern, Downtown Evanston is the most popular residential area for Kellogg students. Most apartment buildings in Downtown Evanston are a 20 minute walk from the Donald P.

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.
