Sherbooke, February 5, 2020 - Desjardins Group continues innovate with today's grand opening of a 360d space at Université de Sherbooke. At the space, students can chat with Desjardins representatives who understand their needs, and get guidance and support to improve their financial literacy and reach their goals. The space also features interactive touch-screen technology to help students explore their options. In addition to this new space, Desjardins has an on-campus presence at other major Quebec universities, including Université de Montréal, Concordia University, UQAM, UQAC, UQTR, Université Laval and École des technologies supérieures.

Desjardins boosts presence with students

Given its location on the main campus of Université de Sherbooke, this Desjardins space offers students from across the province and abroad a new type of financial services experience. In addition, the 360d team members come from a wide range of backgrounds and skills, offering services in multiple languages catered to the realities of students.

"The new 360d space at Université de Sherbooke lets students get to know Desjardins in a new way. Students from anywhere in Quebec can use the 360d space to do their banking and get advice as if it were their home caisse. And for international students, the space means they can get financial services directly on campus. This is our way of showing students that Desjardins is invested in providing outstanding services to members and clients whenever and wherever works best for them," said Mario Lapierre, Vice-President, Direct Sales and Distribution, Desjardins Group. "The 360d service model is built on the values of innovation, sustainable development, cooperation and commitment to helping young people succeed--values that both Université de Sherbooke and Desjardins are known for."
