In 1970 an in-service university class was located at the Hoa Binh Youth Labor - Communist Party and was established under decision no. 138-TTG, dated August 17th, 1970, by the prime minister under the management of Ha Son Binh People’s Committee.

In 1977 the schools changed its name to Ha Son Binh Technical College, due to the affiliation of the two provinces Ha Tay and Hoa Binh.

In 1992 Ha Tay Technical College accepted Ha Son Binh Agriculture Junior High School under decision no. 105/QĐ-UB, dated April 17th, 1992, by the Ha Tay People’s Committee.

In 2003 Ha Tay Community College (HTCC) was established under decision no. 5345/QD-BDG&DT, dated October 3rd, 2003, by the Ministry of Education and Training. At this time, the school came under the management of Ha Tay People’s Committee.

In 2009, Ha Tay Community College came under the management of Hanoi People’s Committee, under decision no. 3332/QD-UBND, dated July 6th, 2009, by Hanoi People’s Committee as a result of Hanoi’s administrative territory expansion (Ha Tay was merged into Hanoi in 2008).

After more than 30 years since the first days of establishment, HTCC has had its ups and downs with lots of difficulties; however, with a strong will of generations of staff and the faculty, together with the strong support of local and central authorities in all levels, HTCC has affirmed its position and role in the education system, and contributed to the high quality human resources training to meet the demands of local and regional socio-economic development.
