Apartment is Great

Units are nice and well built. Like the facilities. Management is awesome. They really seem like they are there to make our experience better as opposed to trying to make as much money as possible off of us.

All amenities included

Centrum is great! The finishings are all new in the apartments, making life comfortable. All the amenities also make life easy- gym, study rooms, rooftop, bike room- and it is in a very central location in downtown evanston. The only downsides are that apartments can be smaller than some of the older buildings and it is a long walk to the business school.

Great amenities, terrible management

It's a bit on the expensive side, but it's got killer amenities (roof with grill, common room, gym, free breakfast on Fridays, package lockers) and finding it and signing the lease was relatively easy to do from far away, sight unseen. That being said, with more time and the ability to visit other locations more off the beaten path, we probably would have chosen to go elsewhere for two main reasons. First the management. Second, the switch from cool to heat appears to be centrally controlled, which has left many residents in a lurch.

Definitely the right decision

Apart from some very small quirks (lack of overhead lights in bedrooms, translucent shades) I’m absolutely glad I chose centrum over E2. A ton of Kellogg friends still live here, it’s fun, the elevators actually work, don’t have to interact with a doorman to pick up packages or leave my apt to let someone into the building, ceilings and walls are concrete so very quiet for sleeping, very nice fixtures, appliances and amenities, and most important, next door to all the shopping and bars. And the gym is actually useful, good amount of space, machines and weights. The roof deck is amazing in the warmer months, very relaxed about large groups.

Awesome Residence

Centrum is a newly developed building which has all the amenities one would want in a luxury apartment including gym, parking, rooftop, grills, TV room, study lounge etc. It is in an awesome location near both train lines and by all the Evanston restaurants and bars. It is full of Kellogg students / fun, but a little less dorm like than E2. The walk to campus is ~5-10 minute further

About Downtown Evanston

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.
