Clean and Basic

This building is incredibly clean with great management, close to the 172 and the 6 going downtown. Much better value than Regents with apartments being continually updated.

Great experience

Management is amazing and so responsive. The appliances aren’t the best, and the walls are thin, but very minor inconveniences. Besides that, rent is affordable in a good area close to 53rd and Regents

Excellent management, great location

The management at Twin Towers is excellent and quick to respond to maintenance requests. The building is slightly old, but also very welcoming, close to the lake, and right on the bus line that takes you to the law school (and there's another bus that goes downtown). The fitness center is very nice and there is central air conditioning.

The biggest downside is that the only nearby grocery store is Whole Foods, but that is true of most of Hyde Park right now.

Affordable apartment with good management

Great location with easy access to the 172 and 6 buses. The building is slowly updating all units. My unit is not yet updated, so the kitchen, bathroom, and carpet need updating, but the rent is very affordable and the maintenance team is great. I like that the building has a (basic) gym and secure lockers for packages.

Twin Towers Review

Great value for Hyde Park high-rise apartments: mini-gym inside, relatively spacious, hardwood floors, nice bathroom. Only downsides are stoves are electric and not gas, and there is no dishwasher.

Kenwood Reviews

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.
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!
It's a cute neighborhood, lots of young professionals, beautiful architecture, close proximity to school and super close to the city. Downside is few good food options and can get boring. But I love the free bus!
40 minute walk to campus, or buses that pick you up; nearby are: Whole Foods, Target, many restaurants and bars
I have not felt unsafe in the neighborhood, although I have done my best to avoid being out alone at night.
Restaurants and groceries close. Easy transport. Lots of other law students
I prefer the short commute to school to living somewhere I'd have to wake up earlier. But HP is a little quiet, so depends on what you're looking for. More restaurants and shopping options are being added really quickly right now so that's a pro (Whole Foods coming soon!) but it's definitely different than living in a neighborhood in/closer to the Loop.
Hyde Park is on the rise if you like gentrified, bougie neighborhoods. There are more fancy restaurants coming to the neighborhood as UChicago bought out 53rd street. It's a good neighborhood for a college experience but I am speaking as a formal student. It's unclear how non-university affiliated folks feel about the changes as there is sadly not much interaction between the University and the rest of the community.
