Villejuif Louis Aragon is a station of the Paris Métro, located in the commune of Villejuif. The station opened on 28 February 1985 when Line 7 was extended from Le Kremlin-Bicêtre and serves the commune of Villejuif as the southwestern terminus of Paris Métro Line 7.

The station is named after the Avenue Louis Aragon and Louis Aragon (1897–1982) a French writer. The station is also the northern terminus of tram line T7, which opened on 16 November 2013.

An extension of line 14 from Olympiades to Maison Blanche is planned, possibly taking over the branch to Villejuif – Louis Aragon. The French government announced in April 2009 a possible extension of this line to Orly Airport and eastern and western circular metro lines around Paris, connecting in the south at Villejuif – Louis Aragon.[1]
