Bekkestua is a town in the municipality of Bærum, Norway, with a busy bus terminal and a station on one of Oslo's westbound T-bane lines, Kolsåsbanen. It also has its own library, McDonalds, police station and fire station. It has grown to be the second largest centre of the municipality after Sandvika, with small restaurants and shopping centres.

Nadderud stadion (stadium), was until recently and for many years the home ground of the Stabæk I.F. football club is at walking distance from Bekkestua. It was opened in 1961 as a sporting ground for the Nadderud Gymnas (High School). This high school was later demolished to give space to an extended stadium.

The Oslo International School, often referred to as the British Primary School in the Oslo area, is located next to Nadderud stadion.
