FAIRWINDS Extends Student Banking Partnership with UCF


Credit Union to Serve as Student Banking Services Provider for the University of Central Florida Through 2028

FAIRWINDS Credit Union will continue to be the official student banking services provider for the University of Central Florida (UCF) through 2028, extending a partnership that began in 2012.

FAIRWINDS provides student-centered products and services, including: a no-fee student checking account, an emergency savings account with a premium rate, a debit card round-up program, and FAIRWINDS Money Milestones, a prescribed curriculum to help set students up for financial success.

FAIRWINDS has a branch location and two ATMs on the main UCF campus.

“We’re proud to continue this partnership with UCF,” said Larry Tobin, president and CEO of FAIRWINDS and a UCF alumnus. “Our mission is to change members’ lives on the journey to Financial Freedom. We’ve been doing that for UCF students throughout our partnership, helping them start off on the right financial path with the goal to live a debt-free life. We’re excited to continue guiding students to save more, eliminate debt, build wealth, and live generously.”

“UCF thanks FAIRWINDS for continuing as the banking services provider for our students,” said Kevin Sowers, UCF’s Assistant Vice President of Business Operations. “FAIRWINDS provides solutions that help our students’ financial well-being, and they are a trusted financial advisor for many of our faculty and staff. We look forward to another five years of working together.”

FAIRWINDS has a long history of supporting the University of Central Florida. Since 2005, FAIRWINDS has naming rights to the FAIRWINDS Alumni Center on campus. They are also the presenting sponsor of The EXCHANGE at the UCF College of Business as well as the sponsor of the new Master’s in FinTech Professorship.
