UCCA’s University City News print newsletter is unique. It is the only source of hyperlocal news in University City. You will find news and features here that you won’t find anywhere else. UCCA thanks all the UCCA dues-paying members, contributors, the County Board of Supervisors, and newsletter advertisers who help to keep us in print.

Our volunteers are confident that you, our readers, value the University City News as much as UCCA does. We thank you for your support and donations that help keep our newsletter in print.
