Xuzhou ( ), otherwise known as Pengcheng ( ) in ancient times, is a major city in and the fourth largest prefecture-level city of Jiangsu province, People's Republic of China. It is known for its convenient location as a transportation hub in northwestern Jiangsu, as it has expressways and railway links connecting directly to the provinces of Henan and Shandong, the neighbouring port city of Lianyungang, as well as the economic hub Shanghai.

Before the adoption of Hanyu Pinyin, the city's name was Romanized as Hsu-chou (Wade-Giles), Hsuchow (Chinese Postal Map Romanization) or Suchow.
