Seabury Apartments are located at 600 Haven Street, Evanston. TGS is working with the University Housing office to offer priority applications to Seabury for students who are parents. Seabury is newly renovated with an abundance of features, its proximity to campus amongst the most notable. This residence offers affordable housing options to the graduate student population, and we are excited to offer this priority application service to students who are parents.
How to take advantage of the priority application process: send a completed Seabury Application to Penny Warren at firstname.lastname@example.org . Your application will be forwarded to University Housing and flagged as a priority application. This will not guarantee you housing, but it will improve your chances of being selected.
The Off-Campus website contains the information and resources available to students living off-campus, from apartment hunting to being a good neighbor within the Chicago/Evanston and Northwestern communities.
Some students rent apartments in Chicago and the neighboring suburbs. Since the campus is centrally located, public transportation is excellent. It is highly advisable for students who wish to rent apartments to visit the area and make living arrangements before beginning their graduate work.
