Schools, universities, museums, and educational clubs around the world use Autodesk software to inspire, engage, and prepare the next generation of design leaders. The Academic Resource Center (ARC) makes it easy for qualified educational institutions to download leading Autodesk software such as AutoCAD, Inventor, Revit, 3ds Max, Vault Professional, SketchBook Pro, and Alias Automotive, and more.
Autodesk provides free* educational licenses for software to qualified educational institutions. 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. Note that all users will be prompted to update user profile (legal terms and school name) before you can download more software on behalf of your educational institution.
