Adobe Creative Cloud for Students

What is Adobe Creative Cloud?

Adobe Creative Cloud is a collection of applications from Adobe that includes Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, Premiere, Acrobat, and more (see below for the full list).

How Do I Access Adobe Software?

Adobe software is available for free to UO students via the Campus Virtual Lab.

Adobe temporarily allowed student access to Adobe Creative Cloud on personal computers through August 15th 2020 for students who were enrolled in Summer 2020 courses – unfortunately, Adobe did not extend that program past the August 15th date. Should the UO be open for on-campus instruction during Fall term, plans are underway to provide student access to Adobe Creative Cloud in both the physical on-campus labs as well as the virtual labs.

If you already have a personal account, you will be prompted to pick which account you want to log into. There is a "Personal Account" and "Company or School Account" option. You can log into either, but files stored in one account will not be accessible from the other account. Choose "Company or School Account" to access the Adobe Creative Cloud apps available to you as a UO student.

⚠️ Personal Adobe Accounts: A "Personal" Adobe account is not affiliated with the UO in any way, even if you use your email address to sign into it. For any issues related to your Personal Adobe account, including subscriptions, billing, refunds, technical support, etc., you'll need to reach out to Adobe Support directly. UO's IT Support teams do not have access to Personal Adobe accounts and the UO is not responsible for any issues that may arise related to a Personal Adobe account.
