Let $\mathbf{R}/R$ be a quadratic extension of finite, commutative, local and principal rings of odd characteristic. Denote by $\mathbf{U}_n (\mathbf{R})$ the unitary group of rank $n$ associated to $\mathbf{R}/R$. The Weil representation of $\mathbf{U}_n (\mathbf{R})$ is defined and its character is explicitly computed.
