Utah's 3rd congressional district is a congressional district in the United States House of Representatives. It currently covers nearly all of Utah County and the west side of Salt Lake County, in central and west central Utah.

George W. Bush received 77% of the vote in this strongly Republican district in 2004. By the time of the report issued for the 110th U.S. Congress, District 3 overtook Utah's 1st congressional district to be named the most Republican district in the Cook Partisan Voting Index.

The district was created when Utah was awarded an extra congressional seat following the 1980 U.S. Census. All of its Representatives have been Republicans, with the exception of Bill Orton, a Democrat who represented the district from 1991 to 1997. The current Representative is Republican Jason Chaffetz.
