The Seattle Star was a free, neighborhood newspaper in Seattle, Washington, United States, covering the south and central sections of the city. Founded in 2002 as the South Seattle Star, it changed its name to the Seattle Star in 2004. It was distributed free.

With the May 18–31, 2005, issue, the Star merged with the Seattle Sun to form the Seattle Sun and Star. It printed its last issue on July 1, 2005.

The Star was unusual for being a well-written neighborhood newspaper whose issues regularly featured investigative reporting. The difficulty of adhering to such high editorial standards while meeting the bottom line of a free neighborhood tabloid ultimately pushed it under.
