There’s now a new way UMD students, faculty and staff should access the Adobe Creative Cloud software suite. You should now choose the “Enterprise ID login,” which will direct you to the UMD Central Authentication System page where you can log in with your UMD Directory ID and password. Visit the IT Library for instructions on how to sign in. For more information, go to Adobe Creative Cloud is under the Design and Production category.

One of the greatest benefits of this new offering is that, moving forward, members of the UMD community will no longer need license keys to install the Adobe Creative Cloud software suite, and you will no longer need to renew your subscription annually.

Please note that any current files, assets, projects, or settings that are being used under the current “Adobe ID” will not transfer automatically to the “UMD enterprise ID.” The IT Library offers instructions on how to migrate Adobe Creative Cloud assets. Assets created with your current “Adobe ID” will be accessible until 30 days after your current individual subscription expires.

Adobe Creative Cloud apps have been available to UMD students, faculty, and staff since 2014. Many of Adobe’s popular Creative Suite applications and cloud services are offered, including Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, Acrobat, Premiere, Muse, and many new ones. There are mobile apps for iOS and Android, too. 

If you have any questions or encounter any issues, please contact the Service Desk at 301.405.1500 or
