UMassFive College Credit Union’s proto-model branch
UMassFive College Credit Union maintains locations for students and employees of the University of Massachusetts college system through Amherst College, Hampshire College, Mount Holyoke College, and Smith College. Membership may also be obtained through certain occupations or associations as well. Established in 1967 as a one branch office by faculty members, the bank has grown to include four physical locations, a full service call center, and online capabilities.
The Northampton Credit Union, home to Hampshire College, was a great pit stop for making deposits and withdrawals during the often hectic days of college life. Taking into consideration the opportunity to offer more services not just to the students, but faculty members as well, board advisors were budgeting for more space and patiently waiting for the right location to make it available.
The UMassFive College Federal Credit Union proto-model branch build was designed to support their long-term goals and growth. This new branch build has allowed UMassFive to:
- Provide space and an environment that supports the needs of staff and members.
- Deliver a new experience through digital signage, interior design and environmental graphics.
- Grow their financial offerings to provide a deeper level of financial support to members.
