Credit union ends fee for ATMs on campus

URBANA — The University of Illinois Employees Credit Union has discontinued the $1.50 surcharge for use of its ATMs on the UI campus.

The surcharge is paid by anyone using an ATM or debit card issued by an institution other than the credit union.

Greg Anderson, senior vice president of the credit union, said the change was made because "the credit union is here to serve its members and the University of Illinois as a whole, including all campus populations and visitors."

The ATMs that now carry no surcharge include those at the Illini Union, the Illini Union Bookstore, Beckman Institute, Illinois Street Residence Halls, the Activities and Recreation Center and the Campus Recreation Center East.

The credit union's other ATMs at its branches in the community and in partnership with local CVS stores still carry a surcharge for non-UIECU ATM and debit cards.

The credit union is one of five institutions with ATMs on the Urbana campus, a release from the University of Illinois Employees Credit Union said. Until now, all the ATM machines on campus carried surcharges ranging from $1.50 to $3.
