  9. What access do staff have to Adobe software?

    All staff can access Adobe Creative Cloud (Adobe CC) for home use through signing in with their staff email, single sign-on ID and password.

    Downloading Adobe CC to a personal device:

    If you wish to download Adobe CC to your personal device you can do so by signing in to the Creative Cloud website and following the instructions to sign-in. You will be asked to provide your DMU email address and then taken to a DMU Single Sign-On page.

    After signing in you will be given access to Adobe CC and you can download the Adobe CC app and other services.

    Installing Adobe CC on a DMU computer:

    If you require access to Adobe CC apps on a DMU computer, there is a high probability they have already been installed on your machine. If this is not the case and you require Adobe CC for work purposes or teaching, you can request this through ITMS Service Desk's MyITSupport area and a desktop technician will contact you to assist you with the installation process.
