The National United University (NUU; Chinese: 國立聯合大學) is a public university in Miaoli City, Miaoli County, Taiwan.


Completed under the management of Zhang Guang-Shi, Xu Li-De and the college president, Chen Wei-Zhong, the school (then a two-year private junior college) started its first semester in September 1972. This college was the only higher education institution in the Miao-Li region at the time.
