(472271) 2014 UM33, provisionally designated 2010 TQ182, is a trans-Neptunian object residing in the outer Kuiper belt. It was discovered on October 22, 2014, by the Mount Lemmon Survey.

It is approximately the size of 2 Pallas in the asteroid belt. On August 18, 2015, 2014 UM33 was found to have been discovered over four years previously, with the designation 2010 TQ182. This extended its observation arc to over 4 years, and then precovery observations were found using the Sloan Digital Sky Survey from 2009.
