Neusatz District (Serbian: Novosadski okrug or Новосадски округ; German: Bezirk Neusatz; Croatian: Novosadski okrug; Hungarian: Újvidéki körzet; Slovak: Novosadský obvod) was one of five administrative districts of the Voivodeship of Serbia and Banat of Temeschwar (a crown land within Austrian Empire) from 1850 to 1860.
