University City District (UCD) was established in 1997 to improve the quality of life of this 2.2 square mile area of West Philadelphia. An independent, not-for-profit organization, UCD builds effective partnerships to maintain a clean and safe environment and to promote, plan, and advocate for University City's diverse, urban community.
Its full-time administrative staff manages programs and services that enhance public space, increase public safety, assist homeowners and commercial and rental property owners, and promote University City attractions. UCD is managed by a 25-member Board of Directors representing University City's prominent institutions in education, health care, and scientific and medical research as well as representatives of University City's business and residential communities.
