Giving the LMU Community a financial edge 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 their immediate families. We add value by offering competitive pricing, the highest quality personal service, and sincere, sound advice.
