Los Alamitos-based Southland Credit Union has opened a new branch on the California State University campus in Long Beach. The credit union signed an agreement with the university to lease branch space in the University Students’ Union (USU). The branch, previously occupied by Wells Fargo, is Southland’s eighth branch.
Southland Credit Union Long Beach State Campus Branch offers a full-service banking experience, including ATM access, deposits, withdrawals, opening new accounts, issuing loans, instant issuance debit and credit cards, digital banking, remote deposit and an ATM. machine.
“As a proud alumnus of Long Beach State, I am thrilled to have the opportunity to continue to grow our partnership with the University,” said Tom Lent, President and CEO of Southland. “The Southland team is poised to serve as a guide to personal financial success for students, faculty, and staff at Long Beach State. Go to the beach!”
Southland Credit Union is also the official credit union of Long Beach State Athletics. The multi-year agreement between Southland and Long Beach State Athletics supports several college athletic programs. The credit union also operates three ATMs on the Long Beach State campus and at Blair Field, in addition to the fourth ATM at the USU branch.
“I am very excited about the opening of Southland Credit Union and the opportunities it provides for students on campus,” said Mitali Jain, Chairman of the University Students’ Union Board of Trustees. “I look forward to having more financial empowerment workshops.”
Southland has committed to partnering with the Long Beach State Career Development Center to fill needed positions for branch staff, and has also partnered with Associated Students, Inc. (ASI) to host financial education workshops for Long Beach State students. The credit union will also hold a grand opening event at the branch during the fall semester of 2022.
