Lei Cheng Uk Estate (Chinese: 李鄭屋邨) is a public housing estate and Tenants Purchase Scheme estate in Lei Cheng Uk, downhill from Cheung Sha Wan, Kowloon, Hong Kong, located near the So Uk Estate. Since area redevelopment in 1980s, the estate consists of 10 residential buildings completed in 1984, 1989 and 1990. In 2002, some of the flats were sold to tenants through Tenants Purchase Scheme Phase 5. The estate is now managed by Hong Kong Housing Society.

In 1955, while levelling a hill to construct the Lei Cheng Uk Resettlement Area, workers discovered an ancient brick tomb dating to the Eastern Han Dynasty (25–220CE). A total of 58 pottery and bronze objects were found inside the tomb. The site is now the Lei Cheng Uk Han Tomb Museum.

Lei Cheng Uk Post Office was opened 1972.04.04 at: 深水埗東京街39號A [39 Tonkin Street 'A' block, Lei Cheng Uk, Sham Shui Po]. It remained in that location until April 1986, when it moved to what would be its last location at: Shop 114, G/F, Lei Cheng Uk Shopping Centre, Lei Cheng Uk Estate, Sham Shui Po [深水埗保安道李鄭屋商場114號]. It closed 2018.02.05, being replaced by the So Uk Post Office which opened that same month.
