The next generation of designers, innovators, and creators are today’s students. That’s why Autodesk gives educational institutions free* access to the design software and apps used by millions of engineers, designers, and digital artists around the world. The Academic Resource Center (ARC) makes it easy for qualified educational institutions to download leading Autodesk software such as AutoCAD, Inventor, Revit, 3ds Max, Maya, and more.
To get started, create an account or sign in with an existing Autodesk account.
If your educational institution obtained Autodesk educational grant software prior to February 24, 2014, you may sign in with the account you used to activate that software. You will be prompted to update your user profile (including the name of your educational institution) before you can download more software on behalf of your educational institution.
