Cell Phones, Banks & Hotels
Northwestern neither endorses nor recommends any particular cellular provider, but there are several vendors who provide service in the Evanston area. These vendors are AT&T, Sprint/Nextel, T-Mobile, U.S. Cellular, and Verizon. For more information on cell phone service on campus, visit
http://www.it.northwestern.edu/telephone/cellphone.html. Please note, University-provided landline service in student rooms is available by request only, it's a good idea to bring your cell phone to campus. The Undergraduate Housing Office will distribute information about how to order landline service for your University-managed residence hall room. WildCARD Advantage Business is also a good resource for students to review.
Northwestern neither endorses nor recommends any particular bank. The only bank located on campus is U.S. Bank (which can be linked to your WildCARD), however, many other national banks are located in Evanston and are walking distance from Northwestern's campus. National banks located in Evanston include (in no particular order) Chase, Bank of America, National City, Citibank, Fifth Third, and others. This list is subject to change, so we recommend you contact the national bank you are most comfortable with to determine whether they have a location in Evanston, IL.
