Oakhanger is a village in the East Hampshire district of Hampshire, England. It lies 1.7 mi (2.7 km) west from Bordon, south of the B3004 road. The village has one pub, The Red Lion. A Roman road passed through the village but there are no visible signs of its existence. On its path is built a large space satellite tracking station at the south end of the village. This is in marked contrast to the thatched 18th Century cottages adjacent.

The village's notable places include St. Mary Magdalene church and the former Royal Air Force station, RAF Oakhanger—now privately run.

The nearest railway station is Alton, 3.8 mi (6.1 km) northwest of the village. The village formerly had a station on the Longmoor Military Railway, now closed.
