Jiaotong University, Jiao Tong University or Chiao Tung University (simplified Chinese: 交通大学; traditional Chinese: 交通大學) may refer to:

  1. Shanghai Jiao Tong University, Shanghai, People's Republic of China
  2. Xi'an Jiaotong University, Xi'an, People's Republic of China
  3. Southwest Jiaotong University, Chengdu, People's Republic of China
  4. Beijing Jiaotong University, Beijing, People's Republic of China
  5. National Chiao Tung University, Hsinchu, Taiwan (Republic of China)

Jiao Tong or Chiao Tung may be translated as transport but it also means "extending in all directions". Engineering and managerial sciences are prioritized academic focus, not the exclusive fields of research in Jiao Tong Universities.

There are now also other universities named Jiaotong University which do not have the same origin as the above five Jiaotong universities, including:
