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.
