Adobe Creative Cloud Software

Adobe Creative Cloud applications are available in labs and, for Thayer graduate students, are installable on your own devices.

Logging in to Adobe Apps with Your Dartmouth NetID

NOTE: You should not use the "Continue with Google" option when logging into Adobe if you have an Adobe license through the college. Please follow the instructions below.

To log in using your Dartmouth netID and password when prompted by Adobe to log in, enter dartmouth.edu in the username field and hit Enter, and you will be redirected to the Dartmouth Single Sign On page. Enter your netID, password, and Duo, and you should be allowed to access the application. If you are not, please contact Thayer Computing at computing@thayer.dartmouth.edu. Alternatively, you can create a free Adobe ID and use that to log in to the application.

Thayer Public Lab Access

You can access several Adobe applications on any Thayer public lab (M210, C218, Cadlab, etc). The current list of installed applications is:

  • Acrobat DC
  • InDesign
  • Illustrator
  • Photoshop

To use these applications, you will need to log in to Adobe. You can follow the steps above to use your Dartmouth credentials, or if that doesn't work, you can use any free Adobe account.

Student Access

Dartmouth provides free access to run Adobe products on personal machines for all undergrad and Thayer graduate students while they are enrolled. To do so, download the Creative Cloud Desktop App here:

https://creativecloud.adobe.com/apps/all/desktop/pdp/creative-cloud

Once installed, it will ask you to log in. Enter dartmouth.edu into the username field and hit Enter, and you will be redirected to the Dartmouth Single Sign On page. Enter your netID, password, and Duo, and you should be allowed to access the full suite of Adobe Creative Cloud applications on your own device.

Thayer Faculty and Staff Access

Faculty and staff access to the Adobe applications is limited to a certain number of licenses, so we are unable to give the software away for free. Adobe software is free to use in the labs, however, so it is strongly recommended that occasional users of Adobe applications go there before purchasing a license. If you need Adobe applications on your personal device, please contact Thayer Computing at computing@thayer.dartmouth.edu.
