    HSBC and Chase are walking distance from campus. We originally chose HSBC because they have a atm on campus. Most ATM's on campus are owned by the school, there you will receive service charges. My S has since changed to Chase and goes to their ATM. HSBC really was not convenient for us to make deposits, locations not close at home. Word of advise: Include yourself on account so you can keep an eye on the finances. Chase also emails and/or text messages you when there is a low balance.

    Most of my friends including myself have Chase. We don't even need to use the ATM and pay the extra fees because the bank is very close.

    I chose Chase because they actually have a building just off campus, which to me is convenient if I ever need to speak to a teller. I also those this bank because there are many branches in my city so it was very convenient when I came home.
    The other banks on campus:
    Bank of America (only an ATM though)
    and I believe Alliance is also near campus
    Since they are all within walking distance I would suggest you chose a bank close to your neighborhood in order to make it easier for the student when they come home and for you if you wish to deposit money
