Segambut (Chinese: 泗岩沫) is a sub-district and a parliamentary constituency in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

From the high-end condominiums of Mont Kiara and Sri Kiara to the middle-class areas of Taman Sri Segambut and Bandar Manjalara, and the rural areas of Segambut Dalam and Kampung Sungai Penchala, the Segambut constituency has a diverse population base.

Segambut once belonged to the mukim of Batu Caves before 1974, when Kuala Lumpur was still part of Selangor.

Segambut is served by the train station of the same name, on the KTM Komuter line, that runs from Tanjong Malim to Port Klang, via KL Sentral and other city-centre stations.

The new Istana Negara is located in this constituency, along Jalan Tuanku Abdul Halim (fka Jalan Duta).
