Namespace:   System
Assembly:  mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)

public static TimeZoneInfo Utc { get; }

Property Value

Type: System.TimeZoneInfo

An object that represents the Coordinated Universal Time (UTC) zone.

This is a built-in object; information about this TimeZoneInfo object is not retrieved from the registry.

System_CAPS_importantImportant

You should always access the Coordinated Universal Time (UTC) zone through the TimeZoneInfo.Utc property rather than assigning the UTC time zone to a TimeZoneInfo object variable. This prevents the TimeZoneInfo object variable from being invalidated by a call to the ClearCachedData method.

Coordinated Universal Time was previously known as Greenwich Mean Time (GMT).

The following example retrieves a TimeZoneInfo object that represents Coordinated Universal Time (UTC) and outputs its display name, standard time name, and daylight saving time name.

TimeZoneInfo universalZone = TimeZoneInfo.Utc;
Console.WriteLine("The universal time zone is {0}.", universalZone.DisplayName);
Console.WriteLine("Its standard name is {0}.", universalZone.StandardName);
Console.WriteLine("Its daylight savings name is {0}.", universalZone.DaylightName);
