Can I get access to Adobe software from off campus, or do I need to use a campus computer?


If you are a current UT Southwestern (UTSW) faculty or staff member, or a student, you are eligible for a license for the Adobe Creative Cloud through IR at a reduced annual cost of $242 per user license. All licenses expire at the start (September 1st) of each fiscal year and must be renewed for continued use. New purchase license cost will not become prorated.

To purchase an Adobe Creative Cloud Suite user license through IR, submit a request to the UTSW Service Desk by email. Include the following information for the person who will own the user license:

Full Name


UTSW Username

Chart of Accounts information


PS Oper Unit

Dept ID

Person conducting business or undertaking (PCBU)
