Northeast Evanston

Suburban Setting & Popular for Kellogg MBA Students
Quieter than downtown with a suburban feel and calmer setting, yet still close to campus for Kellogg students. Northeast Evanston offers convenient access to transit for students who still want access to downtown Evanston. Aside from downtown, this is the most popular spot for Kellogg MBA students and for good reason - it's safe and has solid restaurants & bars.

Renters rave about this neighborhood for the value you get compared to other parts of Evanston and greater Chicago. While it might not be the most lively place, it's great for those who want a nice place and a quiet setting.

Northeast Evanston — 7.6/10 Rating (based on 26 neighborhood reviews)
Walkability to the Foster CTA, E2, and the Davis Street Metra is a definite plus. Subway across the street is good for being on the run, although wish there was a coffee shop a touch closer. Would definitely recommend a bike for trips to / from the new Kellogg building.

The neighborhood is perfect. For Kellogg students, it's close to the Jake, relatively close to the new building, and close to all the other Evanston apartments to never be a problem meeting up with people. It's right next to the Foster St L line and a couple blocks from the Metra.

Very easy to get to the El, a direct walk to campus that is shorter than coming from most other apartment buildings in Evanston, easy to get to bars and restaurants downtown.

Sherman and Noyes is a great little pocket of Evanston with lots of shops and restaurant options, a specialty grocer and easy access to the train. There are a lot of undergrads in the area but the noise hasn't been a problem at all. Great for couples, families and pets.

Neighborhood is fine. Food options are limited and it's a bit of a hike from the Hub (20-25 minutes depending on how fast you walk). Would recommend a bike.

Not much in this area. There's a Subway, Thai restaurant, Pizza Hut, and fried chicken place called Chicken Shack nearby. Also a dry cleaner. But it's really only a 10-15 walk to the rest of the bars and restaurants that Kellogg students tend to frequent.

Neighborhood is safe -- lots of other Kellogg students nearby. Occasional emails from Northwestern warning of criminal activity in the area, but I have not witnessed anything that makes me feel unsafe.

Neighborhood is also quiet as its a decent walk from the bars and other nightlife.

A little further from downtown, but doesn't impact one's ability to go out or meet up with other friends. There are also quite a few Kellogg students who live in the Reserve.

Quieter than the downtown Evanston area or E2. Lots of families, and some Northwestern undergrads. Far north, so it's closer to the Hub than the larger buildings downtown.

Safe, walk around at night all the time as a woman without worrying about it. Evanston is boring but has everything you need (grocery, bars, enough decent restaurants).

I love the neighborhood. It's only a 10 minute walk out of downtown Evanston, but the immediate vicinity has a cute coffee shop, several very good independent restaurants, and a small grocery store (including liquor/beer) that generally meets all my needs.

A bit far from downtown Evanston in winter, but very manageable. And living across the street from Chicken Shack is pretty great...

This is a quiet and safe area. It is a reasonable walk to downtown and Northwestern campus, but you will probably want a car for errands.
