A charterhouse is a Carthusian monastery. The word is derived by phono-semantic matching from the French term chartreuse, the first monastery of the order having been established in a valley of the Chartreuse Mountains (see List of Carthusian monasteries).

It can also refer to:

Financial institutions

Places

Sites of scientific interest

Other
