The Ohio State University

Asterisk-Free Checking TM. Built Right For Buckeyes.
Huntington is proud to be The Official Consumer Bank of The Ohio State University®, offering a checking account with no monthly checking maintenance fee, no minimum balance requirement, no monthly debit card fee, and more convenience than any other bank with 28 on-campus ATMs and five campus-area branches. If you open an account, Ohio State may receive a financial benefit used to support student, employee and alumni programs. But, opening an account is voluntary and is not required to receive Ohio State services or student financial aid. Other accounts are available. Learn more about the relationship.
Huntington is the only bank that links your BuckID® to your checking account, so you can use it to access cash at ATMs and make PIN-based purchases, just like a debit card. If you choose, you can link your BuckID at any Huntington branch.
