The Universidad Pública de Navarra (Basque: Nafarroako Unibertsitate Publikoa) is a public university created in 1987 by the government of the Spanish autonomous region of Navarre (Spanish: Navarra, Basque: Nafarroa).

The main campus is located in Pamplona, at the outskirts of the city, near the CA Osasuna's El Sadar Stadium, and a new campus was opened in Tudela, a city in southern Navarre, for the 2008-09 academic year. The Health Sciences building (Spanish: Ciencias de la Salud) was placed off-campus near the two biggest hospitals of the city.

Currently there are about 10,000 students taking fifteen different careers, the most popular of which are business administration and several different engineering degrees.

There are also many foreign students taking part of Erasmus programme, ISEP, Virrey Palafox, or other exchange programs.
