Great Area

The area is great! Everything is near by our apartment. Work is walkable distance. Cat trains are right by the apartment such as, redline, blue line, pink line, orange line. I would definitely recommend this area to others. It does get loud sometimes.

Metropolis

Living at Metropolis is great because of its location. Everything is close by the department stores, restaurants, Michigan Ave, and public transportation. The downside of living here are the rules imposed on the tenets. For example, if you bring a piece of furniture on your own you have to make a deposit of $200. That can be inconvenient for people.

The Loop Reviews

222 reviews
Amazing place to have a social life! It is super close to Gleacher and to where recruiting events take place. Most Boothies live in this area and that helps creating a nice community. West loop with amazing restaurants is 2 metro stops/5min uber. TNDCs also happen walking distance. Its also where most touristic attractions are so its great for when friends/family visit you.
You should live in the Loop because it's easy for transit to campus and you're near others for group meetings. As soon as I graduate I'm planning on leaving though. You're by tons of shops and takeout/fast casual restaurants. However, I much prefer the neighborhood bars and restaurants in Lincoln Park.
Columbus plaza is on the quieter side, a few blocks away from Michigan. Tides and park millennium are even quieter but lack the river views that CP offers. It can be a bit too empty at night, which may be of concern to some. Most of the nearby restaurants in the pedway focus on serving office workers so they close around 6pm. Great access to river walk for running or biking.
This is the best neighborhood for Booth students to live, in my opinion. You can easily walk to Gleacher Center, catch the train to Harper Center, see most of your fellow students within your building or next door, and go to other neighborhoods for outings.
Living here is great because it's where all the Booth students live. It's the downtown area so it's not ideal for the social scene, but we're close enough to the action where it doesn't matter much. Also, we're across the street from the train.
Like living in the Loop to be near other students and it is not too far from other neighborhoods with good restaurants, bars, etc., but is a little far from work out studios, supermarkets, etc.
I like living in the Loop because 1) I'm close to the majority of other Booth students and 2) I'm close to the metra train, which I take ~4 days a week to get to and from campus.
The loop is a great place to live as a Booth student since it’s so quick and easy to get to campus. It’s not my favorite part of Chicago, but for school it’s a good place to be.
