The European Unitarian Universalists (EUU) is a network of English-speaking Unitarian Universalist fellowships and individuals in Western Continental Europe. It was founded in 1982 to provide support and religious community for expatriate American Unitarian Universalists in Europe, although it also includes a few European natives.

About half of the over 200 members belong to lay-led fellowships that share resources and programs. The most important fellowship is in Paris (France). Other fellowships are located in different cities in Germany, the Netherlands, Belgium, and other countries. Some of these fellowships have a limited span of existence due to members moving back to the USA. The EUU sponsors two continental gatherings per year and publishes a quarterly newsletter.
