Adobe Cloud named user licensing for higher education

Named user licensing is the most popular licensing method to deploy and use Adobe Creative Cloud and Document Cloud products.

With named user licensing – for classrooms, labs, small workgroups, and departments – education institutions are empowered to bring together an essential and comprehensive set of integrated apps and services, enhancing collaboration and creativity inside and outside the classroom.

Benefits of Adobe named user licensing for students

With named user licensing, students aren’t restricted to working on lab or classroom computers. Instead, they have the freedom to use Creative Cloud apps and services on their personal computers, smartphones, and tablets anywhere – and easily access and work on files across devices.

With all of Adobe’s creative desktop and mobile apps at their fingertips, students have the right tools to create amazing work for any medium and develop essential digital skills. And, with Creative Cloud services, such as Adobe Portfolio and Behance, they have the confidence to showcase their work to potential employers.

All licensing options include:

  • Access to online file storage
  • Hundreds of free web fonts from the Adobe Fonts service
  • Creative Cloud Libraries for file access and sharing inside Creative Cloud apps
  • Prebuilt design templates and assets from Creative Cloud Assets

Benefits of Adobe named user licensing for IT admins

A web-based Admin Console makes it easy to purchase additional seats, add users, and manage software updates.

Named user licensing gives IT admins complete control of removing product licenses for students and employees at any time. As students and courses come and go, IT has the ability to easily reassign the same license as many times as required.

With centrally managed licences, named user licencing also allows better compliance tracking without the need to track machines.
