Stranmillis University College (Irish: Coláiste Ollscoile an tSrútháin Mhilis) is a university college of Queen's University Belfast and was established in 1922 to provide state-funded teacher training by the then newly created Government of Northern Ireland to ensure that there would be a non-denominational teacher training college within the new country after the partition of Ireland. This status was undermined early in its existence, after a statement by Roman Catholic bishops to the effect that a graduate of the institution would not be allowed to teach in a Catholic school soon ensured the that the institution became identified as a Protestant-only institution. The institution is located in Belfast, and has approximately 700 students today and offers the BEd, PGCE and TESOL, as well as other courses.

The university college was associated with the university since 1968 when it became a college of the university and commenced offering the university's degrees. In 1999 this status was upgraded to the current university college status. The university college is financially and organisationally independent of the university.

The university's main building was designed by Charles Lanyon in 1858.
