The Urban Community of Strasbourg (French: Communauté urbaine de Strasbourg), also known by its French initials CUS, is the intercommunal structure gathering the city of Strasbourg (France) and some of its suburbs.

The Urban Community of Strasbourg encompasses only the center of the metropolitan area of Strasbourg (see infobox at Strasbourg article for the metropolitan area). Communes further away from the center of the metropolitan area have formed their own intercommunal structures, such as:

Another part of the metropolitan area is on German territory (Kehl) and is thus outside of the scope of French intercommunality. The Strasbourg-Ortenau eurodistrict provides some cooperation between the French and German local governments.
