What can you do at our new office?
A new teller service experience
We’re excited to offer a quick and easy way for you to manage your money with Personal Teller stations. Our new state-of-the-art system is the first of its kind in the Athens area.
This new banking technology combines the friendly help you get while interacting with a teller and the convenience of using an ATM.
Member service representatives are also be available in the branch to help you get started.
Congratulations to Wendy Merb-Brown on winning a weekend getaway!
We're putting on the finishing touches and getting ready to open the doors! We're so excited to be able to share this new branch with uptown Athens.
What a difference just one month can make! The interior is nearly complete, with many areas already painted and furniture being moved in. It won't be long before we'll be open for business!
The scaffolding has come down on the exterior of the building, and big progress is being made on the interior, including drywall on the first and second floors.

The interior of our W. Union St. branch is taking shape, with more of the interior structures taking form. The exterior of the building is also coming together, including brick being laid on the front.
Building is in full swing! Construction on the interior of our branch has started with the installation of plumbing (and other items) on the second floor.

It was recently reported in The Athens Messenger that the water table below 12 W. Union St. was found to be closer to the surface than originally thought. The project is now being redesigned to eliminate the basement and add a fourth floor. This also means back to the drawing board for our credit union offices! We'll now be occupying the first and second floors of the building.
The office will be located in the 12 W. Union Street building, which was destroyed by fire last year.
“We have been wanting to open a branch uptown for quite some time. This West Union Street opportunity will allow us to be involved with the construction process from start to finish,” announced Ohio University Credit Union CEO, Phil Meyer. “The new office will feature state-of-the-art technology along with the personal service our members expect,” he added.
The new uptown office will provide access to a variety of personal and business account offerings, including deposit accounts, loans, and teller services.
In addition, the facility will house several other departments including the electronic service center and branch lending operations.
“We’re excited to see that this part of W. Union will be restored with a sensitivity to its history but still have the latest technology. This office will provide greater convenience for members who work or go to school on campus,” said OUCU Board Chairperson Butch Hill.
In 2014, Ohio University Credit Union made a $5,000 donation, plus secured a $5,000 matching grant from the Ohio University Credit Union Foundation for a total of a $10,000 donation to help with the immediate housing needs, food and other necessities of the students displaced by the W. Union Street building fire. The $10,000 check was presented to Ohio University Dean of Students Dr. Jenny Hall-Jones.
The site is currently undergoing demolition from damage caused by the 2014 fire.
We'll keep you informed as construction progresses!
