The International Islamic University Malaysia (Arabic: الجامعة الإسلامية العالمية بماليزيا‎‎; Malay: Universiti Islam Antarabangsa Malaysia), also known as IIUM or UIAM, is a public university in Malaysia. Its main campus is located in Gombak, Selangor with its Centre for Foundation Studies situated in Petaling Jaya and Gambang, Pahang and its medical-centric branch in Kuantan, Pahang. IIUM also has two city campuses in Kuala Lumpur and will be opening a new campus in Bandar Universiti Pagoh. The university is sponsored by eight governments from the Organisation of the Islamic Conference (OIC). It is distinct from the International Islamic University Islamabad, Pakistan and International Islamic University Chittagong in Chittagong, Bangladesh.

The university was established on the 23rd of May 1983 and founded upon Islamic principles. Islamic values are inculcated into all disciplines. IIUM offers bachelor, master's degree and PhD courses at its 14 faculties, also known as kulliyyah.

Since 1987, there have been 60,785 graduates and postgraduates who have completed their studies at the IIUM. Out of this, 53,241 were from Malaysia whereas 7,530 were international students.

Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad conceived of the idea for an international institution of Islamic education in 1982 during a meeting between OIC leaders about the Islamization of knowledge. The idea was then shared with the then Minister of Education, Dr. Sulaiman Daud; the Director-General of Education, Murad Mohamed Nor and two other persons. Dr. Mohamed Kamal Hassan, then of the National University of Malaysia along with a senior academic official who attended the meeting, produced the first working paper on the concept of the university.
