Adobe Day at the U


Join us for Adobe Day at the U, September 16


The University of Utah has signed an agreement with Adobe that provides U faculty, staff, and students with free* access to Adobe’s world-class suite of Creative Cloud software.

To kick off this new partnership, the U is hosting Adobe Day on Sept. 16, 10:30 a.m. – 3:30 p.m. on Library Plaza. There will be games, food, contests, music, and of course SWAG.

And, now that you have your cool free software – Adobe experts will be here to show you how to use it. Demos will be open to everyone and will focus on some of the most popular Adobe products.

Demonstration Schedule:

11:00 a.m – noon Photoshop and Lightroom

1:00 p.m. – 2:00 p.m. Web Design Made Easy with Adobe Muse and Photoshop

2:00 p.m. – 3:00 p.m. Video Editing with Adobe’s Pro-Video Tools

(Demonstrations will take place on the main stage at Library Plaza.)

    Does it cost money to get the software or is it totally free to students?

      “The new agreement allows students currently registered in a degree-granting program to download and use Adobe Creative Cloud software. Staff and faculty can download the software onto university-owned computers for free, and work-at-home subscriptions can be purchased for $9.75 per year.”

      Looks like it’s totally free for students to use on university computers, but it’s not worded very well beyond that. Might still cost $10 a year to use on a home computer.
