The Munk School of Global Affairs (also referred to as the Munk School or Munk) at the University of Toronto is an interdisciplinary academic centre with various research and educational programs committed to the field of globalization. It occupies the historical Devonshire House, a former residential hall of the university's Trinity College, and in 2012 opened a second location at 315 Bloor Street West (Observatory Site).

The school was founded as the Munk Centre for International Studies in 2000, named after Canadian businessman and philanthropist Peter Munk who made a $6.4 million donation to finance the construction. It was renamed the Munk School of Global Affairs on April 13, 2010 when Peter and Melanie Munk made a further $35 million donation.
