The Penang State Assembly Building (GPS: 5.41936, 100.34312), or Dewan Undangan Negeri Pulau Pinang, is a public building built in the Anglo-Indian classical style along Light Street.

It used to be the Recorder's Courts and Magistrate's Courts, and formed part of the Central Police Station. At that time, all criminal court cases were heard at the Police Court, which was housed there. The Penang State Assembly Building was built in the early 19th Century, and renovated in 1874. An administrative block, now the Immigration Building, was added in 1890.
