Richard Salveyn (aka Richard Salvin[1]) was a Master of University College, Oxford, England.[2][3]

Salveyn was from a Durham family. He was a Fellow of University College and became Master of the College in June 1547. He resigned from the position in October 1551. He was not a supporter of the Reformation and was later deprived of his livings in the reign of Queen Elizabeth I.[3]

Anthony Salveyn, Master of University College from 1557–58, was probably Richard Salveyn's brother.[3]
