Bukit Jenaton is a hillock in Universiti Sains Malaysia (USM). It is the highest point in the Batu Uban district. The hill was named after Dato Jenaton, the Minangkabau settler who founded Batu Uban in 1742. It is said that from the top of Bukit Jenaton, he has an uninterrupted view of his domain, a one-hundred acre tract of land given to him by the ruler of Kedah, Sultan Muhammad Jiwa, whose territory included Penang Island.

Some of the buildings in USM today are located on Bukit Jenaton, among them the museum, the library and the guest house (Rumah Tetamu).
