Who can access?
Loyola has signed a contract with Adobe to provide their software free to students, employees at home and on-campus machines. Students and employees installing Adobe Creative Cloud on personal (non-Loyola owned computers) will need to request a license through the Technology Services Help Center. After a license is assigned, it will remain active until the student or employee leaves the University. Alumni and former employees are not licensed to use Adobe Creative Cloud through Loyola, however, may purchase their own personal subscriptions.
Loyola employees using Windows based PC machines can install Creative Cloud through Software Center. If you need assistance installing Adobe Creative Cloud on a Loyola owned machine please contact the Help Center at 410-617-5555 or email OTS@loyola.edu.
