Adobe Creative Cloud (CC) is licensed for use by MIT faculty and staff on MIT-owned machines only.

How to Obtain



  • Request to have MIT's license attached to your Adobe ID (MIT certificate required)
    • Before your request is processed, you can download the installer from the Adobe site.
    • You may use the trial until you receive your Adobe ID attached to our MIT Faculty/Staff license.
    • After your request is processed you will receive an email from Adobe indicating that you have been granted access to the Creative Cloud and an email from IS&T with additional help.



  • It is recommended that your department purchase Adobe VIP licenses through Darren Gullen at GovConnection. These licenses are transferrable, unlike licenses purchased directly through Adobe. For more information, see the Adobe CC FAQ.
