Rosemont is a village in Cook County, Illinois, United States, located immediately northwest of Chicago. As of the 2010 census it had a population of 4,202. The village was incorporated in 1956, though it had been settled long before that. While Rosemont's land area and population are relatively small among municipalities in the Chicago Metropolitan Area, the village is a major center for commercial activity in the region and is a key component of the Golden Corridor. Numerous corporate facilities, the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center, and the Fashion Outlets of Chicago are located in Rosemont.

Rosemont is a gated community, as a result of the 1995 decision by residents to enclose the residential portions of the city (roughly half the area of the city), thereby restricting access to locals only, keeping out passers-by.
