Charming, great value, very old

The building is very charming and over 100 years old. Pros: it is unique, has a working fireplace, very spacious and very inexpensive. Very good location too. Cons: it's a very old building and with that comes quirks, malfunctions, and a general lack of glamour.

Great Value Apartment

The rent is very affordable for Evanston (~$1030 for a 1 bedroom) and the location is convenient to the south part of the town. The apartment complex has a lot of "character", but can be a little difficult at times. Laundry takes quarters, is communal, and is in the basement. Management is great at responding to small, minor issues that need to be fixed, but is VERY HESITANT to put any investment into the apartment. Free heat is great in the winter. Street parking is pretty easy when you get the Evanston street pass. Also, it's very close to the bus stop, which makes getting to class easy in the winter.

NOTE: Kellogg's new building will be ~10 minute walk north of the Jacobs Center. This could make a relatively easy walk (15 minutes) more inconvenient (25 minutes).
