When you arrive, you will most likely want to find a bank! In the Santa Barbara area, the bank that is most "international-user friendly" (ie. has locations in other countries and offers all international banking services) is Bank of America.
Here are a few banking locations close to campus:
Bank of America: 1096 Coast Village Rd. (805) 695-8835
Union Bank: 1106 Coast Village Rd. (805) 963-7511
Wells Fargo Bank: 1482 E. Valley Rd. (805) 969-3242
Many Westmont students bank at one of the above-mentioned institutions. Bank America and Union Bank have locations that are conveniently located within walking distance of Shuttle stop #1. (The Westmont shuttle runs daily. For a complete Shuttle schedule, please click here.)
Note: While Wells Fargo does not have a branch within walking distance of a Shuttle stop location, Wells Fargo has an ATM machine just inside of Vons, off of Shuttle stop #1.
Note: Union Bank has an ATM in the upstairs Kerr Student Center (KSC) at Westmont.
