    mines with abbey national (not the usual choice I know) but its been good enough for my needs. Theres a decent interest rate when you're in credit, i like their internet banking and the visa debit card is hugely useful as opposed to some of the crappy cards other baks will give out to students.

    Mine's with HSBC. I was going to change, but since they changed it automatically to a student account when I turned 18, I didn't bother.

    I am with HSBC but that's going to change! They have been a NIGHTMARE about getting me a new Visa card. It took them a month to issue me with a new one after I reported the old one stolen (I was pickpocketed on holiday). They also once sent me a bill for £8.50 for a bank service which I had never used. When i phoned their call centre I spoke to someone who could barely speak english and offered to sell me a loan for the £8.50. I think I am going to change to Natwest or Barclays.

    The Woolwich. I've had an account with them since I was really young. They're a good bank and I see no reason to change.
