Fifth Third Bank Campus Card Advantages:

  • Convenience. With just one card, you can access campus facilities, use your meal plan, and make PIN-based debit card purchases. There's no need to juggle multiple cards for multiple functions anymore.
  • Safety. Both the PIN Debit and MasterCard Prepaid options provide a safer alternative to carrying cash.
    • Our PIN Debit option ties directly to a Fifth Third Bank checking account. it provides access to the account only via PIN at point of sale, safeguarding against the loss of cash is the card is lost or stolen.
    • With MasterCard Prepaid, funds are deducted from a pre-set amount, providing peace of mind agaisnt overdraws. And, because it's not tied to a checking account, Prepaid limits the loss of cash if the card is lost or stolen.
  • On-Site ATM. Fifth Third Bank ATMs are conveniently located on campus, so it's easy to access your money when you need it.
