Cheung Sha Wan Station is an underground station located underneath Cheung Sha Wan Road in Sham Shui Po District on the Tsuen Wan Line of Hong Kong MTR, between Sham Shui Po and Lai Chi Kok. It was opened in 1982. The station's livery is brass.

The station was originally planned with the name So Uk (蘇屋), and the station is close to the Lei Cheng Uk Han Tomb Museum. However, the area around the station is typically deserted recently, due to various abandonment, destruction and reconstruction of the public housing estates nearby.[citation needed]
