Single crystals of UCr2Al20 have been grown by flux method and characterized by means of X-ray diffraction, magnetic, heat capacity and electrical transport measurements. The compound exhibits weakly temperature-dependent, moderately exchange-enhanced Pauli paramagnetism and shows regular metallic conductivity.
