    Bank of America is the way to go. It's on campus (in Loker to be specific), and in multiple places in the square.

    Bank of America is great--otherwise, there's CitizenBank, Sovereign Bank, and, uh...Harvard Credit Union? Cambridge Savings Bank...
    I don't remember the other ones. Those are all in Harvard Square...I'd recommend BofA though, it's the most accessible (Loker!!!) and nation-wide for most students. United Bank...haven't seen one, there may be though. Look online.
    Hope that helped!

    Thanks for the info. I'll go with BofA then.

    If a bank exists somewhere in New England, chances are there is a branch within walking distance of Harvard Yard. After all, Harvard Square contains the highest concentration of ATMs in the country.

    BofA has the worst interest rates and terrible customer service but to each his own I guess...

    Cambridge Trust is in Harvard Square at Holyoke Center on Mass Ave
