Jiuli District (simplified Chinese: 九里区; traditional Chinese: 九里區; pinyin: Jiǔlǐ Qū; literally: "nine lis") used to be a suburban of Xuzhou, Jiangsu Province, China. Its seat was Jiuli Subdistrict, which is a part of Gulou District nowadays.

In 1965, the Mining District, Xuzhou was established with the sanction of the provincial government.[1]

In 1995, the Mining District was renamed Jiuli District, because there is a mountain, Jiuli, in its region.

In 2010, its southeastern part, western part and the rest were merged into Gulou, Quanshan, Tongshan respectively, as a result of urbanization.[2]
