Abstract: Ahlgren and Boylan recently proved the uniqueness of the Ramanujan congruences for the primes $ 5$, $ 7$, and $ 11$ by using the modularity of a certain partition function. Here we use their result to find universal congruences, of a different type, which hold for the partition function modulo all primes $ \ell\geq 5$.
