Giving everyone in the LMU Community a financial advantage since 1993.


Choosing a financial institution is an important decision. You want a partner who understands the University Community exclusively and has the expertise to guide you wisely. At UCU, we offer customized financial solutions for LMU faculty, staff, students, alumni, and immediate family of existing members. We add value by offering competitive pricing, the highest quality personal service, and sincere, sound advice.


From everyday spending to taking out loans, where you bank is a big deal. It can cost — or save — you thousands of dollars. That’s why we want you to bank with your brain. When you choose your new checking account or any one of our loans, chances are you'll end up saving with our Best Rates in the Nation Guarantee.*  Plus, you could earn up to 5.00% APY1 on your cooperatively powered University Checking Account for the banking you already do!
