All employees and students of selected degree programs* at the Lucerne University of Applied Sciences and Arts or the Lucerne University of Teacher Education have the opportunity to install Adobe applications on managed, unmanaged and private devices and use them free of charge. Authorized users can log in with their university mail account and select the desired products using the Adobe Creative Cloud app. The Adobe applications are then automatically installed on the device. The use of the products from the Adobe Creative Cloud is linked to the user account of the respective university and automatically expires when the user leaves or de-registers from the university; the elements stored in the Creative Cloud can be backed up beforehand (see Adobe CC Element Migration) .
* Degree programs with free access to Adobe Creative Cloud:
D&K: all degree programs (incl. pre-course & Digital Ideation).
T&A: Architecture and Interior Design degree programs, Industrial Engineering | Innovation, CAS Applied Design, CAS Lighting Design.
However, students of the HSLU and PHLU who do not receive free Adobe licenses have the opportunity to use Adobe CC at a reduced price. This HSLU/PHLU offer is aimed exclusively at students and is only available via the following page:
Adobe Stock image collection
In combination with the Adobe Creative Cloud services, the "Adobe Stock" image collection is available free of charge. Stock is a collection of millions of images in the highest resolution, which all users of the Adobe Creative Cloud at the Lucerne University of Applied Sciences and Arts can obtain license-free.
The HSLU/PHLU email address is used to log in. The high-resolution images can be downloaded and used freely as needed.
The Adobe Stock image collection is linked to all Adobe applications. Stock can therefore also be accessed directly from the application.
Adobe CC Element Migration
Prior to withdrawal or matriculation, Adobe Creative Cloud elements can be transferred to a new, separate account as part of a free Creative Cloud membership.
The free Creative Cloud membership includes trial versions of most Adobe creative applications - upgrade to use the full versions of those applications and services that are currently part of the Creative Cloud account at the university.
To start the element migration, follow the steps in the corresponding Adobe guide.
Note: The element migration cannot be undone!
