Your Card as an ATM/PIN Debit Card

The University of Iowa has an arrangement with Hills Bank & Trust whereby students may opt to link their ID card to a Hills checking account. Unless a student opts to create a Hills checking account, none is created.  If a student opts to link their ID card to a Hills checking account, use of the card is surcharge free at any Hills Bank owned ATM (over 50 locations in the Iowa City/Coralville area), and for any debit purchase where a PIN number is required.
