Employee & Student Banking

  1. The University does not endorse a preferred financial institution and encourages employees and students to select the institution that best meets their personal banking needs. For those employed at Notre Dame, payroll is disbursed by direct deposit to an account at any financial institution within the United States.
  2. Students can maintain accounts at their hometown bank and access balances and deposit or withdraw funds through devices and services supported by that financial institution, which may be a website, mobile app, or debit cards. 
  3. There are three on-campus/Eddy Street options that provide consumer banking services: 
  • 1st Source Bank, located on the lower level of LaFortune Student Center 
  • ND Federal Credit Union, located on the corner of Moreau Dr. and St. Joseph Dr. on the north side of campus  
  • Old National Bank, located at Eddy Street Commons on the corner of N. Eddy Street and Napoleon Street

None of these financial institutions are affiliated with the university, yet all provide convenient locations.

Banking Tips:

  • Ask your bank to waive or reimburse ATM fees when you use a machine other than theirs
  • Take a few minutes to outline how to manage your money and think about your banking preferences such as location of ATMs, access to a personal banker, and what technology you are comfortable using, so you can make an informed decision on selecting the right bank for you
  • If traveling overseas, select a credit card that does not charge fees for international transactions:

International Students

International students who wish to open a bank account in the US while studying here should consider how their account will be funded, the expenses they will pay from the US account and the method those payments will be made (check, ACH, wire, etc.). If students expect to receive money from parents or relatives from their home country, the student should ask their US bank about incoming wire fees and amount of time before funds received via wire transfer will be available for the student. Conducting online research on the services and fees with financial institutions and meeting with a banker to discuss your questions will be helpful to select the right bank and services needed.  

Student Payments

Students and parents make student account payments through IRISHPAY, the e-billing and e-payment system and at 1st Source Bank on campus.  Go to to learn more about making student account payments.
