ISO 3166-2:MU is the entry for Mauritius in ISO 3166-2, part of the ISO 3166 standard published by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO), which defines codes for the names of the principal subdivisions (e.g., provinces or states) of all countries coded in ISO 3166-1.

Currently for Mauritius, ISO 3166-2 codes are defined for 5 cities, 3 dependencies, and 9 districts. The five cities are former urban councils and are now part of a district.

Each code consists of two parts, separated by a hyphen. The first part is MU, the ISO 3166-1 alpha-2 code of Mauritius. The second part is two letters.
