The University has been negotiating over the past months with Adobe for their Creative Cloud product. Adobe has been very receptive to institutional needs and is connecting UConn to product options that they have been developing. ITS will purchase a bulk number of licenses directly from Adobe through a channel partner at advantageous terms and conditions. We will grant access to these at cost to UConn students via a new storefront on the UConn Software website. This will enable ITS to pass the savings on to students and offer more flexible purchase options (e.g., by semester, full year). We have a verbal commitment on price and purchase options and anticipate receiving a written quote shortly that we can execute against. We will notify the community broadly as soon as licenses are available for use. In the interim, the Creative Cloud software remains available in all library labs on the Storrs, Stamford, Waterbury, Avery Point, and Hartford campuses.
