Santander Bank has two branches within three miles of campus, with the closest branch at 292 Thames St., Newport. In addition, Santander has ATMs in all local CVS branches.

New students can establish a bank account during Orientation by completing an application and providing two forms of identification. Santander representatives are also on campus during the first week of classes, or students may enroll at the Newport branch or their hometown branch.

Student employment payments can be electronically deposited to the Santander account, giving work-study students instant access to their funds on payday. Enrollment in the direct deposit program can be completed in the Office of Career Development or the Payroll Office.

Salve Regina also offers a 24-hour non-bank affiliated ATM, which is located on the lower level of the Wakehurst Student Center.
