Rumyana Glacier (Bulgarian: ледник Румяна, ‘Lednik Rumyana’ \'led-nik ru-'mya-na\) is the 11 km long and 4 km wide glacier on the east side of north-central Sentinel Range in Ellsworth Mountains, Antarctica, situated northwest of Patton Glacier and southeast of Delyo Glacier. It drains the east slopes of Mount Giovinetto and the north slopes of Evans Peak, and flows northeastwards to join Ellen Glacier northwest of Mount Jumper.

The glacier is named after the Bulgarian woman rebel leader Rumyana Voyvoda (19th century).
