Itäkeskus (Finnish) or Östra centrum (Swedish) is a ground-level station on the Helsinki Metro. It serves the Itäkeskus shopping centre and surrounding areas in East Helsinki. After the Itäkeskus station, there is a fork in the metro line: one branch continues north towards Mellunmäki, while another goes east towards Vuosaari.

The Itäkeskus station was one of the first metro stations opened in Helsinki, on 1 June 1982, and was designed by Jaakko Ylinen and Jarmo Maunula. It is located 2.1 kilometres from the Siilitie metro station, 1.9 kilometres from the Myllypuro metro station, and 1.0 kilometres from the Puotila metro station.
