Adobe Creative Cloud availability for faculty and staff

Modified on Wed, 28 Feb 2024 at 11:35 AM

Adobe Creative Cloud is now a part of the standard suite of applications available for installation on all Lesley University owned computers.  Like Microsoft Office, Adobe Creative Cloud will be pre-installed on all newly deployed computers going forward.  Individuals who need access to the suite of applications, and have an existing computer, can submit a request for installation.


What You Need To Know 


What Is Adobe Creative Cloud and Do I Need It?

Adobe Creative Cloud is a collection of software for graphic design, video editing, web development, and photography.  If you don’t currently perform any of the aforementioned tasks, we don’t recommend having the application installed.  For an individual who doesn’t perform such tasks as part of their essential job functions, the entire suite of applications would take up a significant as well as unnecessary amount of storage space and system resources on a computer.


How Do I Request The Software?

If you would like software installed on your computer, you can submit a request by e-mailing IT for installation assistance for your Lesley issued computer.  You can submit your request by emailing


How Quickly Will My Request Be Fulfilled?

We appreciate your patience while we prioritize all requests for support.  We will address requests for installation in the order they are received.


How Long Does It Take To Install The Software?

The installation process takes about 1.5 hours to install every application.  The software can be installed remotely by a technician.  Desktop installations will be performed remotely in order to quickly roll out the software to as many individuals as possible.  If you have a laptop a technician will either connect remotely or you can schedule an appointment to drop off your computer.
