Barom Kagyü (Wyl. 'ba' rom bka' brgyud) — one of the four major schools of the Dakpo Kagyü, founded by one of Gampopa's four main disciples, Barompa Darma Wangchug (1127-1199).

He founded the school's first seat, Barom Gompa, at Sangshyung, in the Nakchu province of Central Tibet.

After an avalanche buried this first temple, a second monastery was established in Nangchen, Eastern Tibet, at the invitation of the king of Nangchen.

Ever since, the Barom Kagyü lineage has been closely linked with the kingdoms of Nangchen and Tsangsar, and was continued mainly as a family lineage.

In recent times, this school has counted masters such as Tulku Urgyen Rinpoche and Lama Gendun Rinpoche as its lineage holders.
