Opening a New Bank Account

Are you needing to open a bank account to support your department’s/school’s/business’s ongoing business needs?  Or, are you needing to close an account or change/add/delete services on an existing account? If so you should contact the Office of Treasury Operations 847-467-0422 or r-emrich@northwestern.edu.

The University has established a preferred banking relationship with JP Morgan Chase in Chicago with best-in-class service and discounted bank fees.  In addition, new accounts can only be opened by “authorized signers” – these are individuals designated by NU’s Board of Trustees as authorized to open new accounts.

For more information and guidance, please call Richard Emrich, Assistant Treasurer, at (847) 467-0422 or r-emrich@northwestern.edu.
