Getting around Woodlawn

Woodlawn Reviews

Super cheap! Ample parking. Easy to negotiate or bargain with landlord. Campus and cafeteria is walking distance. The area is transitioning, so there's a lot of construction on my block. Living in the area does require you to exercise common sense. Grocery store is far away, but whole foods delivers for free, so it doesn't really matter.
They're building a supermarket down the street, so it won't be a food desert anymore. But I had my external spare tire stolen from my car, so it's not the safest.
Hyde Park is a pretty boring neighborhood, but it is close to campus and I'm too lazy to live somewhere else and commute. There are limited grocery store options, though Whole Foods should open soon. PeaPod delivers groceries, Binny's delivers alcohol, and Amazon brings me everything else I need, so the lack of easy shopping isn't too much of an issue. There are a few decent food options, but nothing spectacular. The neighborhood is generally pretty safe, though as a UofC student you'll get an email every time anyone is mugged, which makes it feel more dangerous than it actually is. The neighborhood has a suburban feel more than a city feel, with lots of large houses with lawns and many streets that are super quiet and empty at night.
I feel very safe in this neighborhood. As a white, young, female, I am always cautious when I am out - in any neighborhood. In Woodlawn, I also practice awareness, but I feel comfortable walking alone, running alone, using public transit, etc.
This category is problematic and I refuse to participate.
Close to campus, no nearby grocery stores
Woodlawn is fine as long as you are far north in Woodlawn, close to the start of Hyde Park. I've never had any issues.
Close to the Law School, Jewel Osco, etc.
