Roissy-en-France (; colloquially simply called Roissy) is a commune in the northeastern suburbs of Paris, France, in the Val d'Oise department. It is located from the center of Paris.

One-quarter of Paris-Charles de Gaulle Airport (France's main airport), but none of the terminals, are located on the territory of the commune of Roissy-en-France, which gave its original name to the airport. Later renamed Charles de Gaulle Airport, the airport is still commonly referred to as Roissy Airport in France. The rest of the airport lies on the territory of the commune of Tremblay-en-France and several other communes.
