Large with natural light

The apartment is large and has great natural light, but, though it is a well-maintained building, it is still an older building, so walls are thin, pipes are cranky, furnace is loud, etc.

Nice apartment

1576 is a smaller, vintage courtyard building about a 20 minute walk from the Jake. Overall, I've really liked living here!

Pros: great value for your money (especially for students who want to live alone); the studio apartments are larger than what you'll find in most places and include a separate kitchen; management has been very responsive whenever maintenance requests come up; the apartments have a lot of nice vintage features (e.g., built-ins) and are in great shape.

Cons: it's a bit further from the Jake than most buildings (and will be even further from the new building) but it's usually <10 min to other apartment buildings, only a few Kellogg students live in the building, no in-unit washers and dryers, building has pretty basic amenities (e.g., very basic gym).

1576 Oak doesn't have its own parking, but BJB owns the apartment building across the street, so 1576 residents can rent spots there.

Downtown Evanston has everything you need. E2 is walkable to campus, a Target, and plenty of restaurants, as well as Metra and L stations to get to Chicago. Right across the street is a Subway, a Thai restaurant, and a pizza place, plus there’s a 7-Eleven about a block away, so you’re very close to options if you need food in a pinch.
Close to downtown Evanston but a bit far from E2/the reserve. One of closest apartments to Trader Joes/Whole Foods/Jewel Osco while also being close to campus. Very close to the lake!
Downtown Evanston has everything you need from a downtown including grocery stores, restaurants, and convenience stores.
Downtown Evanston is great - plenty of great food within walking distance, Metra and El trains right nearby, a really nice place to be. Only downside is it's far from school and the only truly walkable grocery store is a Whole Foods, which can get expensive. Overall, wouldn't want to live elsewhere though.
Close to grocery stores and restaurants. Very easy access to Lake Michigan as well!
There isn't much to do here, but that's true pretty much everywhere in Evanston. We're in walking distance to all of "downtown" Evanston, so restaurants / fast food / subway, etc. It's a slightly longer walk than desired to Kellogg, but that's fine.
The apartment is central to downtown and is walking distance to most bars, restaurants, shops, beach, etc. Evanston is a bit of a sleepy town (especially during the pandemic...I've been told it was much more vibrant pre-pandemic).
I live just south of the main downtown area, and it's the perfect intersection of being close to the action but also a bit removed when you want some quiet. I like being a in a more residential pocket, so there is slightly less foot traffic and really nice areas to walk around with a dog, etc.
