Sripatum University (SPU; Thai: มหาวิทยาลัยศรีปทุม) is one of the oldest private universities in Bangkok, Thailand. Dr. Sook Pookayaporn established the university in 1970 under the name of Thai Suriya College. In 1987, the college was promoted to university status by the Ministry of University Affairs, and has since been known as Sripatum University.

"Sripatum" means the "Source of Knowledge Blooming Like a Lotus" and was conferred on the college by Her Royal Highness, the Princess Mother Srinagarindra (Somdet Phra Srinagarindra Baromarajajanan). She presided over the official opening ceremony of SPU and awarded vocational certificates to the first three graduating classes. Sripatum University is therefore one of the first five private universities of Thailand.

In 2002 Sripatum University was accredited by the International Standards Organization (ISO9001:2000) for both undergraduate and graduate programs.
