Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for UCF Students I opened my Student Checking Account for the convenience of having an on-campus site for any kind of necessary transactions. I was pleased with both my experience in opening my account at an off-campus branch, as well my experience when making a deposit at the on-campus site. The Fairwinds staff I have met have been polite, efficient, and very accommodating, helping me out as I am very new to banking and checking. The Fairwinds website is easy to navigate and the on-campus branch is in the optimal location, as I pass it by every day regardless of if I need to use their services.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Overall great experience I joined Fairwinds due to the convenience and availability of funds from ATM locations throughout campus. The people that work at the main Fairwinds office on campus are of high quality and expertise. They seemed to be very knowledgeable in solving the issues that I had such as: being unable to set up my account and helping me with savings and my deposits. Very helpful especially for a young adult still learning about the world.
