University Credit Union Serving the University Community for over 60 Years.
Now Serving the Miami-Dade County Community with World Class Member Service
University Credit Union was established in 1947 as the University of Miami Credit Union to serve the University of Miami faculty, staff and alumni. The credit union built a reputation for meeting the financial needs of the University Community with critical, basic financial services. In 1982 the Field of Membership (FOM) was expanded to include Florida International University and the name was changed to University Credit Union. In 1988, the FOM again expanded to include St. Thomas University. In addition, students on all campuses became a part of the FOM. Fast forward to 2005 when the credit union concluded a merger with Lawyers Credit Union and began service to the legal communities of Miami-Dade, Palm Beach and Monroe Counties. Finally, in 2008, University Credit Union opened the FOM to include all those who live or work in Miami-Dade County, Florida. This was a landmark move that provides for a myriad of opportunities for the Credit Union and its member/owners.
University Credit Union operates as a member owned, not-for-profit, cooperative financial institution that is governed by a volunteer Board of Directors and a volunteer Supervisory Committee. Credit Unions are the only democratically controlled financial institution in the United States and operate with the philosophies, “Not for profit, Not for Charity, But for Service” and “People Helping People”. University Credit Union is in business to provide the best possible financial services to its members at a low cost with favorable rates and overall financial assistance while in constant pursuit of World Class Member Service.
