Cyprus DLR station is a station on the Docklands Light Railway (DLR) located in Cyprus, to the south of Beckton, in the Docklands area of east London. The station serves the University of East London Docklands Campus and the eastern end of the north quay of the Royal Albert Dock.

The station is located on the DLR's Beckton branch, between Beckton Park and Gallions Reach stations. It is in Travelcard Zone 3.

Along with Beckton Park, Cyprus station is of an unusual design. Between the two stations, the DLR runs in the median of a major highway built at the same time as the railway. The stations are located at highway intersections which take the form of roundabouts or traffic circles. On the approach to the roundabout, the road rises slightly whilst the railway dips slightly; the station is therefore situated in a cutting, under the centre of the elevated roundabout, with pedestrian access at surface level under the elevated roadways and arched over the railway.
