UCLA Adobe Creative Cloud Software Now Available for Students

We are excited to announce a campuswide license agreement for Adobe Creative Cloud software. Creative Cloud is now available to full-time UCLA and concurrent UCLA Extension students as part of UCLA’s support for digital scholarship and creativity. Creative Cloud is a collection of more than 20 desktop and mobile apps for photography, design, video, web and more. Some of the most popular apps include Photoshop, Illustrator, Acrobat, Lightroom and Premiere Pro.

To sign up:

  1. Go to the Adobe website and click on “Sign In.”
  1. Type in “ucla.edu” (without the quotes) in the “Email address” field and click on the “Continue” button.
  1. Download the Creative Cloud installer, then install the individual apps you choose.

Detailed instructions for logon are on the UCLA IT Services knowledge base. If you already have an Adobe account that uses your @ucla.edu email, you’ll be able to migrate your assets and then close that account. If you have Adobe Stock, you’ll need to keep your Adobe account, as that service is not included in the campus agreement.

You can check out our Adobe Creative Cloud FAQ in the ITS knowledge base. Adobe’s Creative Cloud tutorials can be found on the Adobe website.

If you are not able to activate your account/license or have questions about the program, please contact the IT Services Support Center via email at [email protected] or (310) 267-HELP (4357).
