Glen Ullin is a city in Morton County, North Dakota, United States. It is part of the "Bismarck, ND Metropolitan Statistical Area" or "Bismarck-Mandan". The population was 807 at the 2010 census.

Glen Ullin was founded in 1883 along the transcontinental route of the Northern Pacific Railway. The name was created by Major Alvan E. Bovay, a Northern Pacific land agent at the time. Glen, the Gaelic word for "valley," was chosen because of the city's location within a valley, while Ullin was taken from the Thomas Campbell poem Lord Ullin's Daughter.
