UV Grus, a W UMa star in the southern hemisphere was observed in V filter using personal telescopes in South Africa during the 2006/7/8 season. An ephemeris of UV Grus is presented. Software modeling packages of BINARY MAKER 3 and PHOEBE were employed to constrain the parameters of the binary components. The result of the modeling exercise is presented.
