The club changed its name to White Star ahead of the 1992–93 season and played in the second division a season later.[1][2]

Another name change came in the 1996–97 season when the club became University before its debut at the Super League in the 1997–98 season. The club's results improved year by year and the club recorded strong finishes in the Super League such as second in 2000–01, third in 2001–02, second in 2002–03 and fourth in 2003–04.[1][3] These results allowed the club to take part in European competitions such as the Top Teams Cup (in 2001–02 and 2003–04) and the CEV Cup (in 2002–03 and 2004–05).[4] From 2004 the results started to decline and the club was relegated at the end of the 2005–06 season.[5]

Ahead of the 2006–07 season, the club moved under Lokomotiv Belgorod structure and was renamed University Belgorod.[6] Results started to improve again, promotion back to the Super league was achieved during that same season.[7] In the following season (2007–08), the club finished sixth place in the Super League.[8][9] Despite the seventh place finish at the 2008–09 Super League,[10] the club won the 2008 Russian Cup[11] and qualified for the CEV Champions League.[4][1]

The club moved back under the Belgorod State University structure in 2009 and changed its name to University of Technology. It finish eleventh at the 2009–10 Super League[12] and reached the play-off stages of the 2009–10 CEV Women's Champions League after beating eventual champions Volley Bergamo at the group stage.[13] The club was dissolved at the end of that season.[14]
