The electrical resistivity of the antiferromagnetic dense Kondo compound UCu5In has been studied on single-crystalline specimens under hydrostatic pressure up to 2.2GPa. Upon applying pressure, ρa(T) hardly alters but the other two resistivity components, i.e. ρb(T) and ρc(T), show some change in their magnitudes, in both the ordered and paramagnetic regions. The Neél temperature TN=25K is almost independent of pressure, which indicates that the magnetic moments in UCu5In are rather well localized.
