Staffanstorp Municipality (Staffanstorps kommun) is a municipality in Skåne County, southern Sweden. Its seat is located in the town Staffanstorp.

The municipality was formed by the local government reform of 1952, when 12 original units, created out of parishes in 1863, were amalgamated. The next reform in 1971 did not affect the size of this municipality.

In the municipality there are two localities which have grown into suburbs of Malmö, Staffanstorp with 14,800 inhabitants and Hjärup with 4,000 inhabitants, which both are typical residential districts dominated by detached houses built in the second half of the 20th century, wherefrom most people commute for work in the nearby cities of Lund and Malmö.
