Other Banking Options

Evanston banks welcome student accounts. ATMs are available at Norris University Center, the Henry Crown Sports Pavilion and Norris Aquatic Center, the Technological Institute, the Pancoe-ENH Life Sciences Pavilion, the Donald P. Jacobs Center, and on University Place near Scott Hall.

U.S. Bank provides the most access to students on Northwestern’s campus, and students can link their WildCARD to U.S. Bank checking and savings accounts.  There are, however, other accessible local and national banks in the downtown Evanston area.
