Mie University (Mie Daigaku, abbreviated to Miedai) is a national university in Tsu, Mie, Japan. As with other 'national' universities, 'Miedai' has been a national university corporation since April 2004, when state-funded universities were partially privatised. In 2006, it was ranked 250th in the Times Higher Education Supplement list of the World's best universities.
The institution is Mie's only 'national university', located in the city of Tsu in the Kansai region, within easy reach of Kyoto, Osaka and Nagoya. The campus is situated in the north-east of the city, close to the coast of Ise Bay. Though some students make use of nearby accommodation, larger numbers commute from the larger cities, as well as nearby towns such as Ise, Matsusaka and Toba.
