Brief History

The University City Swim Club (UCSC) opened in 1964, a half-block from 48th Street & Spruce Street, Philadelphia. UCSC is a non-profit private club with a proud history of diversity. A complete reconstruction in 2004 gave us the beautiful pools we enjoy today, and our locker rooms were rebuilt for the 2014 season. Our bylaws and a volunteer board govern the UCSC, with operations managed and staffed by a professional pool management company.

NOTE: no mail received at the pool itself; all mail goes to UCSC, POBox 9446, Philadelphia, PA 19139.
