The University of Saviso (informally Saviso University, UoS, or USav) is a public research university located in Saviso, Vodeo. Founded in 1794, it is the second-oldest university in Vodeo, and the oldest in St Austell. It is Vodeo's second-largest university, behind the University of Cambria. The university is known for its programmes in law, medicine, the humanities, and science.

The university's main campus is located in Caleigh, an inner suburb across the Saviso River from Southbank and the central business district, with several other campuses located around the city and at Casserres. Since 1838 a number of residential colleges have become affiliated with the university, predominantly located in Caleigh or suburbs surrounding the campus.

Saviso has been consistently ranked as one of Vodeo's best universities since the 1950s, and in 2015 was ranked one of the world's top fifty universities.
