Yuhua Single Member Constituency (Chinese: 裕华单选区; Malay: Kawasan Undi Perseorangan Yuhua; Tamil: யூஹூவா தனித்தொகுதி) is a Single Member Constituency located in the western area of Singapore. The ward covers the area of Yuhua. This ward, formally part of Jurong GRC, was carved out during the 2011 General Election to be contested as an SMC.

One characteristic of this constituency since 1988 is that it always oversees the fight between female candidates, such as one in 2011 and 1991 and another point to note since its inception in 1984 to its absorption into the now defunct Bukit Timah GRC in 1997 and saw its re-appearance in 2011 is that this constituency is always contested by Singapore Democratic Party but to no success.
