The 15th arrondissement of Paris (also known as "arrondissement de Vaugirard") is one of the 20 arrondissements (administrative districts) of the capital city of France.

Situated on the Rive Gauche (left bank) of the River Seine and sharing the Montparnasse district with the 6th and 14th arrondissements, it is the city's most populous arrondissement. The Tour Montparnasse – the tallest skyscraper in Paris – and the neighbouring Gare Montparnasse are both located in the 15th arrondissement, at its border with the 14th. It is also home to the Parc des Expositions which near the Parc des Princes and houses Porte de Versailles exhibition centre, the high-rise district of the Front de Seine (or Beaugrenelle).
