Grefsen is a neighbourhood of the city of Oslo, Norway.

Together with Kjelsås, Grefsen was part of the borough Grefsen-Kjelsås until January 1 2004, when they became part of the new borough of Nordre Aker. Grefsen and Kjelsås were also part of the former municipality of Aker before the second world war, when the city of Oslo was confined to today's central areas.

The railway line Gjøvikbanen goes through the area, but Grefsen Station is actually located at the close by neighbourhood of Disen.

The Norwegian football club Kjelsas IL have their home stadium in Grefsen.
