Located in Enfield, ACC offers associate degrees, certificates, and short-term workforce training to prepare students for careers, transfer opportunities, and lifelong learning. The college was established in 1969 as the 12th institution in the Connecticut state community college system.  Classes began in 1972 in the former North School Building in the Thompsonville section of Enfield, with an initial enrollment of 251. Later, Asnuntuck moved to a leased warehouse on Phoenix Avenue before growing out of the space and relocating in 1983 to its current location at 170 Elm Street. The college added its advanced manufacturing program in 1998, and in 2017 added a 27,000-square-foot state-of-the-art Advanced Manufacturing Center. Since its first graduating class in 1974, more than 7,844 credit graduates and non-credit certificate completers have been awarded 12,816 degrees, certificates, and non-credit certificates from Asnuntuck Community College. 

Asnuntuck is among 12 community colleges in Connecticut merging in 2023 to become CT State Community College, one of the largest community colleges in the country and largest in New England, dedicated to quality, access, and affordability. CT State students will be able to apply once and take classes at any campus.
