Free Access to Adobe Creative Cloud for Students

As a result of recent actions, we know a lot of students have concerns around access to critical software. We recognize that you will increasingly want or need to access this from outside the labs. We’ve therefore been working with Adobe and they have provided temporary at-home access for all students and staff, so that they can continue their work remotely. This means you can download and install any or all of the Creative Cloud software onto your own devices (this includes Photoshop and all the other Adobe apps).

Please follow the instructions below to enable access to Creative Cloud Desktop Apps on your personal device.

  1. Visit and use your University of Worcester email address to sign in.
  2. You should then be taken to the University of Worcester login screen. If prompted, select Company or School Account and then enter your password. Or provide your credentials in your school’s login screen.
  3. From the Creative Cloud website, browse for and download your desired app. Click Apps on the top of the page to view all apps.

For more information on how to download or install apps, see Download and Install Creative Cloud apps.

For Worcester students to continue developing skills, Adobe offers free “Daily Creative Challenges”. These are guided projects where participants receive creative prompts and connect with pros, mentors, and other students for feedback and support. Click on the app name to learn more: Photoshop, XD and Illustrator. Also, for inspiration and over-the-shoulder learning, watch pros share their creative process on Adobe Live daily at
