The Ulster Institute for the Deaf (UID) was a Northern Ireland charity based in Belfast to support the Deaf Community in Ulster. In 1991 it merged into the Royal National Institute for the Deaf, now Action on Hearing Loss.[1]

It was originally an educational institution at Fisherwick Place, Belfast, where Francis Maginn (1861 – 1918), one of the founders of the British Deaf Association was its first superintendent.[2]
