THE BEST SPOT ON SOUTH CAMPUS
CRC is a few minutes away from most of the most prominent and frequently visited locations on the south end of the Northwestern University campus. We're also a few polite and engrossing conversations away from much of downtown Evanston.
CRC has an assigned dining space in the 1835 Hinman dining hall, right across the street from the building. Many residents and members choose to dine in the space for the social atmosphere and familiarity, and faculty and staff fellows also often have lunch at Hinman among members of CRC.
On the weekends when Hinman's dining hall is closed, the next closest dining hall is Allison Hall, and it's just a few minutes away by walking.
