Using Adobe 2019 Software Suite as a UWE student

Adobe has introduced a new way of managing it's user licenses with the introduction of the 2019 versions. This means everyone needs to log in to an Adobe account to use their software.

When you start a session on a UWE computer and open an Adobe program you will be presented with a log in screen. You only need to enter your UWE email address and click "Sign In". If you are using a PC, this will take you straight through to the program. If you are using a Mac, you will be re-directed to a second log in screen where you need to enter your UWE email address and password.

Some users may have their own Adobe account. If you use this, you may see differences in the software features available compared to the UWE Adobe Enterprise account and we will only be able to support you with the UWE Enterprise version.

Areas of Frenchay Library and some open access/learning zones have specialist PCs with specific groups of specialist software installed. Faculties may also provide a range of specialist hardware and software to support their teaching and learning.
