Jeyawati is a genus of hadrosauroid dinosaur which lived during the Turonian stage of the Late Cretaceous. The type species, J. rugoculus, was described in 2010, based on fossils recovered in the U.S. state of New Mexico.

The holotype, MSM P4166, was discovered in the Moreno Hill Formation. A cladistic analysis indicates that Jeyawati was more primitive (basal) than Shuangmiaosaurus, Telmatosaurus, and Bactrosaurus, but more derived (advanced) than Eolambia, Probactrosaurus, and Protohadros.
