The $1.2 billion UW credit union stands to pick up a significant number of new student members after it inked a deal that will allow University of Wisconsin students to use their identification cards at the CU's ATMs.

The deal includes the credit union opening and renting the space for a branch in a new student union building and contributing to the new building's construction. The new ID/ATM cards will allow students to access university buildings, pay for their meals in their dorm cafeterias, get cash from the ATM and make purchases at point of sale terminals with their personal identification number, according to Lisa Girdharry, UW's director of marketing.
