Migvan (Hebrew: מגוון‎, lit. Colourful) is a small urban kibbutz located in the city of Sderot in the northwestern Negev desert in Israel.

The kibbutz was founded in 1987, and the original six members of the group have expanded to 60 members. It is a mixed model of the urban kibbutz (collective economy, culture, and weekly meetings) with private homes
