We welcome faculty, staff, students, alumni, family members and everyone affiliated with the University Community.

 

University Credit Union is different by design. We are a strong, vibrant member-owned cooperative designed by you, for you, and without the conflicts that plague many other financial institutions.

 

Our team of highly trained experts is focused on providing you a financial edge. Since 1951, University Credit Union has been an active partner of the university community. From the early days, when a group of pioneering and passionate UCLA team members created an alternative to for-profit banks, to now where we strive to support almost every area of our University partners’ lives. We invite you to bank with your brain.

"After my car was totaled a week ago I was extremely surprised to find I could get a new car for almost the same price. Now I have a new car almost 1 week after losing my old car and I couldn't be happier!"
