Welcome to the website of the University City Eruv Corporation. We are a non-profit corporation whose mission is to maintain an Eruv (what is an Eruv?) around portions of University City, Philadelphia.

Following many years of hard work, the eruv was declared kosher prior to Rosh Hashana 5763 (September 7, 2002).

We urge you to explore our website to see a map of the eruv, our corporate structure, and giving opportunities in order to maintain the eruv. The Eruv is a vital feature in allowing the University of Pennsylvania to accomodate its many Shabbat Observant students as well as visitors to the local hospitals. We appreciate your support and help, which we need to maintain the Eruv.
