Uttaradit Rajabhat University (Thai: มหาวิทยาลัยราชภัฏอุตรดิตถ์) or URU is a Thai public university under the Rajabhat system. The campus is located just within of Uttaradit, a small city north of Bangkok. It was established in 1936 in the name of The Uttaradit Teachers College Uttaradit. Rajabhat University is the first university of Uttaradit Province

On 14 June 2004, all Rajabhat institutes nationwide were graciously upgraded by His Majesty the King, who signed the Rajabhat University Act, B.E 2547 (2004), which was announced in the Royal Gazette for implementation starting from 15 June 2004. This promoted all Rajabhat institutes to become a Rajabhat University, a closely knitted group of Thai universities dedicated to the preservation of Thai heritage and subject to the National Tertiary Education Commission of the Ministry of Education.
