Give your students, educators, and staff access to the world’s best apps for design, web, video, and photography — plus the latest features and innovations as soon as they’re released.

Creative Cloud Device Licenses are designed for a classroom/school lab setting. A Device License is the only way to allow multiple users on a single computer without having to log-in or authenticate license ownership. Licenses for each computer, rather than each user, with rights to install on one computer per license.

Creative Cloud Named User Licenses are intended for small work groups and departments. Each Named User License is granted to each user rather than the device. A Named User License allows the user to install the software on a second computer, as long as the second installation is for the use of the same person and not used simultaneously.
