Apparently it's the closest building with amenities to campus, is safe, and a ton of law students live there, but doing a little research online turned up mixed reviews. I've also read that it's overpriced for Hyde Park, but compared to NYC rent it actually seems like a steal. If anyone's actually seen Regents Towers or knows of other places law students live around there I'd be interested in hearing about it.
Here are some pictures I took of my apartment in Regents last summer before we moved in. I'm from New York as well, so the rent seemed amazing to me too. Objectively, Regents IS overpriced for the area, and they find every single way to nickel and dime you. But it's very convenient to the bus route. Depending on the hour, sometimes the 172 bus fills up at Regents and very few additional people can get on. Not good for them. I signed a two year lease, and will probably live here my 3L year as well. Less because I love Regents, more because I dread moving. I'll move downtown after I start working.
