UNC-Chapel Hill is excited to announce that, beginning today, Monday, September 19, Adobe Creative Cloud licenses are available to all students and to 2,000 instructional faculty and staff.

To acquire a license, students and instructional faculty and staff can visit

The University has purchased a subscription to Adobe Creative Cloud’s entire suite of creative desktop applications for digital imaging, design, web and video, plus online services and storage. You’ve probably heard of Adobe’s popular software Photoshop, Illustrator, Acrobat, Premiere Pro, InDesign and many of the other Adobe applications for creating and managing content across mobile, desktop and the web.

UNC-Chapel Hill is providing the Creative Cloud software through an Adobe Enterprise subscription model. Carolina’s partnership with Adobe empowers the campus community to create and manage content with these powerful tools across platforms and in a secure way. In addition to the licenses available for students and instructional faculty and staff, licenses are also available at a cost of just $20 per year for departmental purchases.

The University is providing Adobe Creative Cloud to help empower students to advance from being a generation of digital consumers to being a generation skilled in the latest digital communication tools. This initiative is part of a larger commitment to digital literacy on campus and was made possible by collaborators from around the University.

Pilot of Carolina Digital Literacy Initiative

Faculty leaders in Department of English & Comparative Literature in College of Arts and Sciences have a vision for promoting literacy that helps members of the Carolina community become not only critical consumers but also innovative producers of digital knowledge.

This Fall semester several instructors teaching ENGL 105, the writing course required of all incoming undergraduates, have created assignments designed to foster this type of literacy: instructors and students will be designing multi-modal projects using applications that include those in Adobe Creative Cloud. The College’s Digital Innovation Lab and the Undergraduate Library’s Design Lab and Media Resources Center will support these efforts with the same resources and services they have provided the campus community over the past decade.
