The USC was founded under the name Universitäts-Sportclub Münster in 1961. Initially, the men around Karl Herzog , Hans-Ulrich Graßhoff and Manfred Kindermann were successful. You were German champions without interruption from 1965 to 1972 and in 1976 you won the DVV Cup . Since the volleyball department became independent in 1981/82 and is called Independent Sports Club Münster , women have taken over the management. With currently nine German championships and eleven DVV cup victories, the USC is the second most successful German women's club after the Schweriner SC. Another championship title was revoked in 1998 because Wendy Stammer from Münster was doped . The Münster women were also successful internationally: They won the CEV Cup in 1982, 1994 and 1996 as well as the European Cup Winners' Cup in 1992. Numerous record national players and volleyball players of the year played at USC: Annedore Richter , Margret Stender , Uschi Westphal , Heidi Kerstiens , Marina Staden , Sigrid Terstegge , Gudula Staub , Karen Baumeister , Alexandra Ludwig , Ariane Radfan , Ines Pianka , Beate Bühler , Ulrike Schmidt , Anne-Kathrin Schade , Judith Flemig , Angelina Grün , Maren Brinker , Louisa Lippmann .

In 2004, USC Münster became German champions for the eighth time. In the following season , the Westphalia managed to defend their title. In the 2005/06 season , the team finished fourth after the championship round. A year later , the USC could not qualify for the final round of the German championship and was the best team in the playdown round in seventh place. The result in the 2008 with the ninth place was even worse . After the final round was abolished, Münster was again ninth in the 2008/09 season , with the USC having the same number of points and the same set ratio as the eighth-placed Köpenicker SC and also tied with tenth and eleventh. In the following season , the club improved by one rank. In 2011 , Münster was also eighth. In the 2011/12 season , the USC achieved their best result in six years when they qualified fourth in the main round for the play-offs and only lost to the Dresdner SC in the semifinals .

In 2014 , the USC came seventh in the main round via the pre-play-offs in the quarter-finals and was eliminated there after three games against 1. VC Wiesbaden . Münster went the same way in the 2014/15 season , when it was lost in the quarter-finals against Allianz MTV Stuttgart . In the 2015/16 season, the USC qualified as fourth in the main round for the play-offs, just like four years earlier, and was again only defeated in the semifinals to the Dresdner SC , which then took the championship title. In the 2016/17 season , the Münster team finished seventh after the main round, qualified for the quarter-finals with two wins in the pre-play-offs against Suhl and were eliminated there after two defeats against Stuttgart. In the 2017/18 season they also reached the play-off quarter-finals as sixth in the main round, in which they were eliminated after two 3-0 defeats against eventual champions SSC Palmberg Schwerin . They were seventh in the main round again in the 2018/19 season , after which they were eliminated again in the subsequent play-off quarter-finals against Schwerin with two defeats (0: 3 and 2: 3).
