The men's 3 metre springboard, also reported as springboard diving, was one of four diving events on the diving at the 1936 Summer Olympics programme.

The competition was split into two sets of dives on separate days:

  1. Compulsory dives (Monday, August 10)
    Divers performed five pre-chosen dives (one from each category) – a running straight somersault forward, standing header backward with pike, running straight isander-half gainer, standing backward spring and forward somersault with pike, and running pike dive with half-screw forward.
  2. Facultative dives (Tuesday, August 11)
    Divers performed five dives of their choice (one from each category and different from the compulsory).

Twenty-four divers from 15 nations competed.
