Turgut Özal University (Turkish: Turgut Özal Üniversitesi) was a private university located in the Etlik neighborhood of Keçiören, a metropolitan district of Ankara, Turkey.

The university was established in 2008 by the Turgut Özal Thought and Action Foundation and is named after former Turkish president Turgut Özal.[1] On 23 July 2016, in the course of the 2016 Turkish purges, the university was shut down by the Turkish government among other 15 universities[2] due to its alleged ties with the Gülen movement.[3]

The facilities and students were transferred to Ankara Yildirim Beyazit University[4]
