Greeley Union Pacific Railroad Depot, located at 902 7th Avenue, Greeley, Colorado, is a former railway station for the Union Pacific Railway. It was designed by Gilbert Stanley Underwood.

Amtrak's San Francisco Zephyr served Greeley until 1983, when Amtrak re-routed the Zephyr off the Union Pacific's Overland Route and on to the Denver & Rio Grande Western main line. This move also ended all service in Wyoming. Service resumed in 1991 when Amtrak started running the Pioneer through Wyoming, but then ended again with the cancellation of the Pioneer in 1997.[2] Greeley was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1993.[1]

The building now serves as an office for the Greeley Convention & Visitors Bureau.
