Sha Tin Wai Station is a station on the Ma On Shan Line in Sha Tin, Hong Kong. The name "Sha Tin Wai" comes from the village called Sha Tin Wai, which is located to the northeast of the station. It was provisionally called "Sha Kok Street Station" before the Ma On Shan Line opened, because it is located at Sha Kok Street.

It serves residents living in Pok Hong Estate (博康邨), Sha Kok Estate (沙角邨), Jat Min Chuen (乙明邨), Yue Shing Court (愉城苑), and also serves over 10 schools around the area, including kindergartens, primary schools and secondary schools, such as Po Leung Kuk Chee Jing Yin Primary School (保良局朱正賢小學), The Church of Christ in China Kei Kok Primary School (中華基督教會基覺小學) and Immaculate Heart of Mary College (聖母無玷聖心書院).

The pattern featured on the platform pillar and glass barrier is a shot of Tsang Tai Uk traditional walled settlement.
