The U.S. House election, 1962 was an election for the United States House of Representatives in 1962, which occurred in the middle of President John F. Kennedy's term. As in most midterm elections, Kennedy's Democratic Party lost seats to the opposition Republican Party, but retained a majority. House Democrats were expected to lose their majority, but the resolution over the Cuban missile crisis just a few weeks prior, led to a rebound in approval for the Democrats under President Kennedy.

The number of seats up for election went back to 435, in accordance with reapportionment resulting from the 1960 census. (The membership had been increased temporarily to 437 in 1959, providing 1 seat each for new states of Alaska and Hawaii, while the other 435 seats continued with the reapportionment resulting from the 1950 census.)

A notable freshman was future Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld (R-Illinois).

Three seats were lost in reapportionment, decreasing the delegation from 30 to 27 seats, with redistricting removing one seat in Philadelphia and two in central Pennsylvania. Two of those seats were lost by Republicans (a retirement and a redistricting contest against a Democratic incumbent), and one seat was by a Democrat (a retirement).
