A staircase tower is a wing of a building or an enclosed room within it that houses a staircase linking the various storeys to one another.

A staircase tower enables the various floors of a multi-storey building to be connected vertically to one another. It is thus a functional component of the building. In modern buildings, the staircase tower often has access to lifts on each floor.
