The Millennium University (Bengali: মিলেনিয়াম বিশ্ববিদ্যালয়) or TMU is a non governmental university located at Dhaka, Bangladesh. The university is sponsored by Khan Foundation, a Philanthropic Private Development Organisation (PVDO) and established under the Private University Act 1992.[1] It is affiliated by the Government of Bangladesh and overseen by the University Grants Commission Bangladesh.

The main campus of TMU is situated at Momenbagh, Dhaka 1217, Bangladesh in the heart of the city.
