Students and Faculty - Using Adobe Creative Cloud applications on a personal computer

Prior to March 19th, 2020, Adobe Creative Cloud applications could only be installed by full-time faculty and staff on University issued computers.  Adobe has now provided temporary at-home access for impacted students and faculty, so that they can continue their work remotely. Please follow the instructions below to enable access to Creative Cloud Desktop Apps on your personal device.  (If you already have an SJU issued computer with Adobe Creative Cloud applications previously installed, this article does not apply to you, and you can follow these instructions.)


Visit and use your Saint Joseph's University credentials to sign in.

If prompted, select Company or School Account and then enter your password. 

You will be redirected to our Saint Joseph's University login page.  Please enter your SJU username and password, and click Login.

You will now be redirected back to the Adobe Creative Cloud website.
