Adobe in the Labs

A Word of Warning

A login is required to access Adobe software in the labs.  All students automatically may use their sign-in.  Visitors to campus may use the software by establishing an Adobe ID (no cost) at, selecting “sign in” then choosing to “Create an account”.  Please be aware of the following caveats:

  • To avoid issues after you graduate, DO NOT use your ilstu email account to sign up for an Adobe ID
  • If you already have an Adobe ID using your ilstu email, you MUST transfer all of your assets to another account BEFORE graduation or leaving the university as you will lose access at that time.
  • DO NOT UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCE try to sync your Adobe ID with the desktop applications in the labs.  This will break the license and the computer will need to be wiped and restored.
  • Files can be synched between the Adobe ID and lab computers using OneDrive, which is part of your Office 365 account.

Mobile Applications
