Regiment Potchefstroom Universiteit (Afrikaans for Potchefstroom University Regiment) is an artillery regiment of the South African Army. As a reserve unit, it has a status roughly equivalent to that of a British Territorial Army or United States Army National Guard unit. It is part of the South African Army Artillery Formation.
The regiment was formed in 1946, when the South African Army was reorganised for peacetime. It was initially called 1 Observation Battery, and in 1950 it was renamed 1 Observation Regiment. On being affiliated with the Potchefstroom University in 1960, it was given the name Regiment Potchefstroomse Universiteit.
