Wings University Tour was a UK concert tour by Paul McCartney & Wings in 1972, shortly after the band's formation and initial album release, Wild Life. McCartney had formed Wings for the purpose of having a band to go on the road with, and he wasted no time in doing just that. During the waning years of The Beatles, notably during the Get Back sessions, he had suggested they return to live performances by showing up unannounced at pubs and playing for the patrons. The idea was never seriously considered by the other Beatles.

McCartney took the band on an impromptu tour of the United Kingdom's universities, showing up unannounced and performing for whoever happened to be on campus. The band's intended first stop on the tour, Ashby-de-la-Zouch, refused to allow them to play, so the band moved on to the more receptive Nottingham. Admission to the first show which was held at 12 noon in the Portland Building Ballroom was GBP 0.40, proceeds being split up equally among the band members. British pub rock band Brinsley Schwarz was the opening act for the tour.

Wings' lineup for the tour was Paul and Linda McCartney, Denny Laine, Henry McCullough, and Denny Seiwell.
