This is an ongoing agreement

What products are available to purchase?

What about New Releases?

Each new release of a major version will require a new purchase.

How to acquire other Adobe products

It is necessary to note that the Adobe CLP Agreement does not include all Adobe products. You need to purchase these products as before from the IT purchasing team. We have an ETLA with Adobe that gives us discounts on Adobe Creative cloud.

For availability/pricing, please see search for your product on the software database pages. Alternatively, please Contact Us.

Adobe’s "Upgrade/Downgrade" Policy

You can downgrade your purchased license of the product to a previous version, however there is no upgrade path and a new license will need to be purchased for a new version

Home Use by staff

The Adobe CLP agreement permits secondary user rights for UCL staff to install a purchased license on a personal machine for work related purposes as long as both are not used concurrently.

Student Use

Students can use the software on any machines, owned or leased by University College London that reside on the premises. Students are not permitted to have copies of UCL Adobe licenses on their machines.

Technical Support

The Adobe CLP agreement does not provide any support. The Servicedesk can provide limited assistance for products forming part of its services and they can be contacted on ext 25000 or email IT Services.

What happens when the Adobe CLP Agreement expires?

The CLP agreement does not expire.
