Dutchess Community College (also known as SUNY Dutchess, Dutchess, or DCC) is one of 30 community colleges within the State University of New York system (SUNY). It is located in Dutchess County, New York, United States, and is situated over 130 acres (0.5 km2) on a hill above the town of Poughkeepsie. The college was founded in 1957 on the site of a former tuberculosis hospital which now makes up Bowne Hall, the campus's main administrative building. More than 60 academic programs are offered, leading to associate degrees or certificates. In addition, the Office of Community Services and Special Programs provides non-credit courses, GED completion, ESL classes, and work-force training to residents of the County and beyond.

One-third of all Dutchess County college-bound high school graduates attend Dutchess Community College each year. The majority of alumni live and work in the Hudson Valley, and many of them have become civic and community leaders in their towns, villages and counties.

In 2007, the College marked its 50th anniversary. Since enrolling its first class in 1957, DCC has awarded degrees and certificates to over 30,000 graduates and has provided educational opportunities for many thousands of other students.

The college's one and only on-campus dormitory, Conklin Hall, was opened August 25, 2012. At 132,000 square feet, it houses 467 students in 98 suites.
