Getting a bank account

Lloyds TSB main branch (Perth Road, very near the University) will open an account for you and provide a debit card on the day, providing you have a passport and a written UK address (a utility bill is accepted, but not required). A temporary address is permitted, such as a "care of" address, as is the use of University Halls of Residence.
