Adobe @ UNCG

Adobe Creative Cloud

UNCG students, faculty, and staff have access to the Adobe Creative Cloud suite of applications on UNCG-owned computers (Mac and PC). This includes, beginning in Fall 2017, computers in classrooms and Information Technology Services (ITS) open-access lab computers.

Faculty and staff will also be able to activate their individual Creative Cloud subscriptions, which provides access to additional collaboration tools, on any two computers, whether personally owned or owned by UNCG. Because of the limits on where you may access your full subscription and these tools, please note your options for Accessing Adobe Creative Cloud Software before you register, activate your subscription, and install the software.
