Be'er Sheva North Railway Station (Hebrew: תחנת הרכבת באר שבע צפון, Takhanat HaRakevet Be-er Sheva Tzafon) (also known as the University Train Station) is an Israel Railways station in Beersheba. It is a stop on the intercity line from Tel Aviv and Nahariya, and the terminus of the Beersheba - Dimona spur.
The station is located on Haharoshet Street and links to the Ben-Gurion University of the Negev by Mexico Bridge, a covered pedestrian walkway. In 2014, another long pedestrian bridge will be built at the station to allow access to the new high-tech business park being constructed north of the station.
The station complex also includes a rail yard and freight terminal. Israel Railways also began constructing the first phase of a large rolling stock maintenance depot east of the passenger terminal in 2012.
After the closure of the old Turkish railway south of the town in 1927, the railway to Be'er Sheva mainly served the phosphate and other mineral industries in the Negev. The first passenger train station at the site opened on March 29, 1956. Between then and the opening of Be'er Sheva Central in 2000 it was the only railway station in Be'er Sheva. In 2002, it was decided to move the passenger terminal at Be'er Sheva North 350 meters northwards to a new building nearby the university and an additional island platform was built.  The new Beersheba North passenger terminal opened in 2005.
