The Polish University Abroad, or Polish University in Exile (Polish: Polski Uniwersytet na Obczyźnie, abbreviated PUNO), was initially established in Paris, France, in 1939 with the aim of maintaining Polish education while Poland was occupied. With the fall of France, it was re-established by the Polish government in exile in London, England.

The Polish University Abroad has a B.A. programme and does research. It has outposts in Paris, France, and Munich, Germany.

PUNO is based in Hammersmith, London. The nearest underground station is Ravenscourt Park (District line).
