Creative Cloud is a set of applications and services which feature a collection of software titles that help bring all your creative ideas to life. A few popular titles include:
Important Update: From October 18 2022, as with Microsoft 365, you will need to use 2FA (Two-Factor authentication) to access all Adobe applications whether you’re studying on or off Campus.
This applies to personal devices as well as University loan laptops and desktop computers across Campus. You will need to re-authenticate within 90 days on each device you use.
Middlesex University is continuing the successful arrangements made with Adobe, whereby you can install your personal copy of creative cloud software on your computer to assist you with your studies.
Important – access is limited to approved schools/courses and modules only.
This agreement allows you to download applications of your choice onto 2 personal devices and a mobile at no cost to yourself. Please bear in mind that not all software will run on a mobile device.
Accessing Creative Cloud Desktop applications and downloading onto your personal device, can be found in this Adobe Sign In user guide.
When you complete your studies and have graduated from Middlesex University, your free access to Adobe will be deactivated.
To safeguard any assets which you may have saved to the Cloud (as opposed to a portable hard drive or USB) please visit graduation.adobe.com where you will find detailed information on how to migrate your assets to a Creative Cloud free membership account*.
*The free membership account will not entitle you to access software and create new projects.
