Abstract: Three possible definitions for the paracompactness of a uniform space are presented and shown to be equivalent. A locally compact uniform space is shown to be uniformly paracompact if and only if it is uniformly locally compact. The set of points of a uniformly paracompact metric space that admit no compact neighborhood is shown to be compact; hence a metric topological group is uniformly paracompact if and only if it is locally compact.
