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 Reviews

385 reviews
All in all ideal downtown Evanston location. Very convenient for public transportation to Chicago, next door to local favorite Bennison's (love the late night smell of donuts baking), and walking distance to plenty of bars, restaurants, and stores. Once the Target goes up by Sherman Plaza and we have an alternative to Whole Foods close by this will be perfect.
McManus is located right next to Evanston downtown, so everything (restaurants, bars, groceries) is very close by. It's also right next to Northwestern campus (~15-18 minutes to Kellogg Global Hub by foot), which helps quite a lot, esp. in the winter when you'd want to keep your commute as short as possible.
We are across from the movie theater and Chilis. In our local neighborhood, we have shopping, events, bars, restaurants, and are a close walk for the Tuesday night parties. The Frost Bite stops by our front door, and both Davis Street stations are a block away or less.
I don't think there is any other place to live if you are a Kellogg student. Almost all the students live in this neighborhood, it's where all the restaurants are, and near the University and the train. The only place in Evanston that doesn't feels like a suburb.
Good central location in Evanston
Close to bars and other apartment buildings that other Kellogg students live in
~25 minute walk to the Global Hub
Evanston itself is just a little boring - no night life
Very close to Davis Metra station and Purple Line
The neighborhood is great and it is centrally located. There is grass around for walking dogs and the movie theater and restaurants are close by. It is somewhat far from the new Kellogg building, but most everything is now.
Great, quiet neighbourhood. Lots of students around obviously (mainly grad students in this area).

Pricey, for sure. Not a lot of cheap grocery/food options within walking distance.

The bar scene is mediocre at best.
Most Kellogg students live in downtown Evanston, everything is walking distance, and the building is a block away from the Intercampus bus stop, and 7 min walk distance from Davis station, which is very convenient.
