Henrik Steen Andersen (born April 6, 1977) is a Danish former swimmer, who specialized in sprint and middle-distance freestyle events. He represented Denmark at the 2000 Summer Olympics, and also trained for the swim team at Taastrup Sport Club (Danish: Taastrup Idræts Klub).
Andersen competed for Denmark in two swimming events at the 2000 Summer Olympics in Sydney. On the first day of the Games, he teamed up with Dennis Otzen Jensen, Jeppe Nielsen, and Jacob Carstensen in the 4×100 m freestyle relay.

Three days later, Andersen, along with Jensen, Nielsen, and Carstensen, placed eleventh 4×200 m freestyle relay with a time of 7:24.63. During the prelims race in heat two, he came up with a spectacular swim on the second exchange and recorded a split of 1:51.51.
