Shared Branching

UCU has partnered with other credit unions through the CO-OP Shared Branch Network. This means you may conduct transactions and obtain services at more than 6,800 Shared Branching locations nationwide just as if you were visiting UCU.

How do Shared Branches work?
Your membership and accounts remain at UCU, but you can access them through the Shared Branch location most convenient for you.

Through the Shared Branch Network members can:

  • Make deposits, withdrawals, and loan payments
  • Transfer funds
  • Get loan advances
  • Purchase money orders and traveler’s checks (if available)
  • Get balance inquiries and more!

When you visit a CO-OP Shared Branch location, you must provide the following information:

  • Credit Union name : University Credit Union (CA)
  • Your UCU Member Number (no suffixes)
    (Where to find your member number)
  • A current, VALID Government-issued Identification card
