- On Friday, August 14, 2020, the College’s Adobe Creative Cloud license was modified to allow faculty, staff, and enrolled students to download and install the Adobe suite on a personal computer.
Adobe Creative Cloud is a set of applications and services that gives access to a collection of software used for graphic design, video editing, web development, photography, and more.
ITS maintains a site license for Adobe Creative Cloud which allows for its installation on Faculty and Staff computers as well as the Public Computer Labs, Academic Computer Labs, and Smart Classroom podium computers. Faculty, staff, and enrolled students can also download and install the Adobe suite to their personal computer.
The following products are available:
|Acrobat DC||Audition||Illustrator||Lightroom||Premier Pro|
|After Affects||Bridge||InCopy||Media Encoder|
Faculty or Staff who need an Adobe product installed on their College-provided PC, can install the software using the “Adobe Creative Cloud” application. If you would like to install the software in a lab or classroom, contact the Help Desk at email@example.com or (610) 330-5501. To install on College-provided PC:

On College-managed computers, faculty and staff will find that they will be required to authenticate with their Lafayette credentials very infrequently on their office and teaching podium computers. Students will likely be required to authenticate on a more consistent basis particularly when using random campus lab computers however, if a student has an existing single-sign-on session established for other College services, (e.g. Moodle, Lafayette email, etc…) authentication will be required less frequently.
Adobe’s website has good tutorials and information on using Adobe Cloud products.
