Egne hjem was an Oslo Metro and Oslo Tramway station on the Kolsås Line located in Bærum, Norway. The station was situated between Ringstabekk and Bekkestua, 10.8 kilometres (6.7 mi) from Stortinget.

The station was opened on 3 November 1924. In 2006, it was the least busy station on this subway line and was located only 300 metres (980 ft) from Ringstabekk and 450 metres (1,480 ft) from Bekkestua. Due to the low amount of passengers and poor location, the station will not be reopened.
