Guro Station is a subway station in Guro District in Seoul, South Korea. It serves Seoul Subway Line 1.

The Gyeongin and Gyeongbu Lines separate at this station, with the former going west and the latter south. In addition, the Line 1 train service depot is located south of here, between Guro and Gasan Digital Complex Stations. However, it appears that in the near future, the present site will be sold and the depot relocated to the vicinity of Gwangmyeong Station.
