This is a list of the Chancellors, Vice-Chancellors and Visitors of Universities in the United Kingdom. In most cases, the Chancellor is a ceremonial head, while the Vice-Chancellor is chief academic officer and chief executive.

In Scotland, the Principal is the chief executive and is usually ex officio Vice-Chancellor, which is a purely titular position.
