Gudmund Hoel (25 September 1877 – 7 September 1956) was a Norwegian architect. He is regarded as the second-most influential railway architect in Norway, after Paul Due.

Born in Kragero, Hoel graduated from Kristiania Tekniske Skole (today Oslo University College) in 1896. For six years he had various assistant jobs at architecture firms in Norway and Germany. In 1904, he started working for Holger Sinding-Larsen, and in 1910 he established his own firm. In 1913, he was appointed director of the newly established NSB Arkitektkontor, an in-house division of the Norwegian State Railways. He remained director there until he retired in 1947. His early works were mostly in historicism, but from the 1920s he started designing in neoclassicism.
