In mathematics, a uniformly bounded family of functions is a family of bounded functions that can all be bounded by the same constant. This constant is larger than the absolute value of any value of any of the functions in the family.

In general let be a metric space with metric , then the set
is called uniformly bounded if there exists an element from and a real number such that
- Every uniformly convergent sequence of bounded functions is uniformly bounded.
- The family of functions defined for real with traveling through the integers, is uniformly bounded by 1.
- The family of derivatives of the above family, is not uniformly bounded. Each is bounded by but there is no real number such that for all integers
