The ab initio self-consis tent calculations were performed for USn_2 compound, which crystallizes in the ZrGa_2-type structure (Cmmm space group). The tight binding linear muffin-tin orbital method in the atomic sphere approximation was used in the calculations. The spin-polarized calculations confirmed the antiferromagnetic order in the USn_2 system. The magnetic moment is predominantly located on the uranium atoms and is formed mainly by the f electrons. The three types of Sn atoms may be treated as non-magnetic.
