Henning Astrup (6 June 1864 – 7 December 1896) was a Norwegian architect.

He was born in Kristiania (now Oslo, Norway) to city captain (stadshauptmann) Harald Astrup and Johanne Emilie Smith.[1] He was a brother of Arctic explorer Eivind Astrup (1871–1895), merchant Sigurd Astrup (1873–1949), and architect Thorvald Astrup (1876–1940).[2] His sister Hanna (1869–1933) was married to politician Peter Andreas Morell.[3]

Astrup graduated from the Königliche Technische Hochschule in Berlin.[4] He cooperated professionally with architect Henrik Nissen, and among their designs were Speilsalen of the Grand Hotel in Oslo[1] the Calmeyer Street Mission House from 1891, and Frimurerlogens stamhus (Lodge of the Freemasons) from 1894.[4]
