Sídlisko Ťahanovce ([pronunciation: 'seedlisko 'tyahano-utse], literally: "Ťahanovce Housing Estate", Hungarian: Tihany-lakótelep) is a borough (city ward) of Košice, Slovakia.

Construction of the microdistrict began in May 1985. Today there are more than 22,000 people living in Sídlisko Ťahanovce (1/10 of all Košice's inhabitants). It is the youngest suburb of Košice, assigned especially for young families.

Sídlisko Ťahanovce is closely connected with the neighbouring, historically older borough of Ťahanovce, which was an independent village until 1969. The first written record about Ťahanovce dates back to 1263. Today it is home to approximately 2,000 (prevailingly elder) people, while the Sídlisko Ťahanovce borough has ten times the population, mainly thanks to its large housing estate.
