Okay for a short term

I decided to live in this apartment because many classmates from my program traditionally live here. Because many people live in this apartment, the elevators are slow and packages get lost sometimes. I see some criminal reports inside and outside of this building. The location is very convenient for grocery shopping and transportation to school and downtown, but I will not choose here if you will be here for a long term.

Overpriced but convenient

Lots of students live here - management and neighbors are nice. Laundry, utilities, parking, location all super convenient. You can definitely find cheaper and better quality housing in Hyde Park, but for busy grad students the convenience is worth it for us.

Property is fine, but I don't like the staff

The staff are not responsive at all. They always send wrong invoices for rent every month. Also they do not respond to calls or do their jobs in relation to billings.

Passable

The space is good, the amenities in the apartment are nice, and rent is about as low as you can get in Hyde Park for a high-rise building. However, management is not willing to resolve issues and the location is just fine.

Convenient and extraordinarily beautiful view

I really like my apartment in general. My favorite part is the view. I took a corner apartment at the South Tower and wake up everyday to see the sunrise in Lake Michigan from huge windows at my room and the living room. I am not sure I will ever live in a place with such an amazing view.

The building has everything you need; gym, market, package room, concierge. In winter, when it is freezing outside, this is very convenient. Also, most of our class lives here, so we go to dinners, parties and reunions without going out of the building.

Another very convenient part of regents is transportation. In the spring quarter we had an LLM class at 8:15 am and we all met in the bus stop and went in the 172 to class together. It was kind of a high school bus experience. :-D. The 6, which goes to downtown, is also available in that stop.

Great view

Apartments at Regents have the best view of the neighborhood. Besides, they are located just besides the bus stop for the University. The amenities are amazing and definitely save a lot of time and money, especially in the winter, when you won't want to go looking for gyms outside. Everything is sorted out for you: internet, cable, etc. and you're apartment is fully equipped with all of what you need (dishwashers, stove, microwave, oven, fridge).

Regents is okay

Overall, a good apartment. A bit noisy and old, but management is usually responsive and helpful.

Overall acceptable

I haven't had any major issue with Mac properties so far. I had some issues in my apartment with a leak in my basin and under the sink, but the maintenance was fast and diligent and they took care of it.
My main issue was with their accounting sector. Each month we had an issue with our bill and how they calculated things and it was so hard to find someone in their office that could help us.

Kenwood Reviews

59 reviews
I love living near the university. I think it is very convenient for attending UChicago events. Most of our class lives here, so it makes it very easy for reunions and parties. I take the bus to the loop on the weekends. Living here does not mean you can't experience the loop fun. But people that live in the Loop usually don't come to our class parties because it is far away.
* Very safe; lots of students and families with children and pets
* Many public transit options to the Law School + Loop (the 6, the 28, the 172, the Metra)
* Close to Lake Michigan, great for picnicking, exercising, or sightseeing * Close to 53rd St. strip (restaurants, bars, a hotel, etc.) but still quiet and peaceful
Hyde Park is a great neighborhood, especially for 1L year. There is plenty to do with new bars and restaurants -- and grocery stores, like Trader Joes -- coming in every year. While it's not as "happening" as the Loop or River North, for example, it's nice to be near the Law School as a 1L and most of your classmates will be in Hyde Park as well. I've lived in Hyde Park for 6 years now and can attest that it is very walkable and very safe, and it has a nice neighborhood feel that you don't get as much in the Loop or Loop-adjacent neighborhoods.
Pretty close to campus, about a 10 minute drive/bike ride. Seems safe, at least east of MLK Blvd. Pretty quiet overall, Maple Court is right next to an elementary school so there is some noise in the morning and when the kids are at recess. Hyde Park Produce is walkable, but not super close. Whole Foods is opening up at Lake Park around 51st/Hyde Park Blvd. soon. Large shopping area at 47th and Lake Park with Walgreens and Subway. Mostly fast food on 47th St. No bars, coffee shops, or anywhere nearby to hang out.
Hyde Park is extremely boring. I live here because the school is here and the commute is easy. There are very few good restaurants and no nightlife whatsoever. Luckily, getting downtown is cheap and easy. I've never felt unsafe during the daytime, but I certainly don't go walking around at night.
Everyone in the LL.M program lives in Hyde Park and most of the people live in Regents. You will have an amazing time and the community is perfect. Even if you live alone, you will always have someone to help you with apartment-related problems or just company.
I enjoyed Hyde Park. Although I did try not to walk anywhere at night, I never had an experience that made me uncomfortable. I think Hyde Park has several very good restaurants and fun bars, and it has a nice community feel. I enjoyed living there!
I like Hyde Park. I'm close to everything on 53rd, and most of the time I don't feel unsafe. I'm also close enough to Kenwood that I can walk/run there for a more quiet, less busy experience. Kenwood Park is the best.
