University Credit Union’s beginnings can be traced back to 1951 when a group of UCLA employees formulated the idea to build a financial cooperative aimed at exclusively serving the university. The original mission, to provide a financial advantage to everyone in the university community remains, as University Credit Union has expanded its footprint to now serve numerous universities and conferences across the United States.


University Credit Union, a federally insured financial cooperative, was founded in 1951 on UCLA's campus by university employees. Since its founding, its footprint has expanded outside of California to now serve additional universities and conferences throughout the United States.

With a promise to advocate, educate, and innovate, University Credit Union is an industry-leading financial partner that serves members of the university community that include staff, faculty, alumni, and students.

Today, University Credit Union serves more than 50,000 members across the United States and several countries, with over $1 billion in assets. As the credit union continues to grow and evolve, its core purpose has always been, and remains, to give its member-owners a financial advantage.
