Hauppauge ( ) is a hamlet in the Town of Islipmarker and the Town of Smithtownmarker in Suffolk County, New Yorkmarker, United Statesmarker.

At the headwaters of the Nissequogue River, it derives its name from the Native American term for "overflowed land."

The Hauppauge Industrial Park, located at the edge of the hamlet, is the largest on Long Islandmarker, and by some accounts the second largest in the nation. The park has over 1,300 companies, and employs over 55,000 Long Islanders.

It is noted for its well-funded schools, with multiple internet-accessible computers in every classroom and many after-school activities, including a drama club with over 200 members.
