Credit Union members enjoy top quality financial services with a level of personal service that you can’t get at a commercial bank.
Our full line of loan and deposit options mean that you will get everything you need right here. And whether you’re opening a checking account, applying for a mortgage, or just looking for some sound advice, our expert staff will make your CU experience easy and comfortable.
All it takes to join is a $5 deposit into your new Share Savings account. Why is it called a ‘share’ account? That $5 represents your ownership share in the Credit Union, because once you become an HUECU member, you also become an owner.
Member for Life
As a member-owner, you’re a member for life. That means if you decide to leave the Harvard community, you don’t have to leave behind the great benefits from your HUECU membership.
A Family Affair
Once you’re a member of HUECU, everyone in your immediate family also becomes eligible. Better yet, once a family member joins, this same eligibility tree extends from them.
Becoming a Credit Union member is quick and easy using our Online Membership Application.

When you go to a branch, you feel more like part of a community than a customer. From personalized attention by banking or notary agents, to classes on smart homebuying, to the little perks like coffee or coin sorting, you feel supported and valued.
I appreciate the small personal banking that HUECU provides. They make me feel not only safe, but also valued as a customer.
Once I accidentally over-drafted my checking account when trying to pay back the credit card. Instead of mechanically deducting the overdraft fee the staff at HUECU called me and asked if I intended to transfer funds from the savings account. I was impressed.
I was sitting face to face with a pushy finance manager at a car dealership listening to his speech about why I should finance my new car with them. He refused to believe that I could find a rate better than theirs, so he got online and looked it up. He was shocked to find the HUECU rate was as low as I said. He closed his book of “deals” and said, “we can’t do better than that!”
The Credit Union has better customer service, better banking, and better interest rates than any bank I’ve used.
My boss told me about the Credit Union and how much he loved it. When I was looking to refinance my mortgage, I was very pleased with the service I received throughout the process.
I love the HUECU customer service. Everyone is so friendly and always in a good mood.
When I call customer service, a real live person answers the phone!
I appreciate the quality service and reassurance we received from HUECU when our home was robbed and our ATM cards were stolen. They helped us close the account right away and gave us peace of mind.
Recently, we unexpectedly found ourselves looking for a home with about 3 months’ notice until our lease was up. HUECU was there from the very first conversation to help guide us through the home-buying and mortgage options. I’m so glad we went through the process with the Credit Union, and I’m forever grateful for the people who helped us.
What I love about HUECU is the excellent services, the people friendly attitudes, and that they are always smiling.
Becoming an HUECU member is one of the best financial decisions I ever made. I love not having to pay fees for using ATMs

In 1985, on my first day of work at MGH, I joined the Credit Union and started a direct deposit savings account. Three years later, I was able to save enough for a down payment on my first home!

Love the vacation club! When I was a child, growing up in the 1960s, my mom had a vacation club at her credit union, and every summer we would have a lovely two-week camping vacation in the White Mountains.

I’m a recent graduate, and I have to say one of my biggest regrets was waiting so many years to join the HUECU family. And it’s just that: a family. I feel like I’m welcomed here rather than being a nameless patron behind a glass partition elsewhere.
