Licenses available on an Autodesk Plan

Looking for an Autodesk license? We’re retiring licenses based on serial numbers and assigning each subscription to a named user. These new plans provide a range of capabilities for organizations of every size.


Maintenance plans will retire on May 7, 2021 and multi-user subscriptions will retire on August 7, 2022. If you are still on a maintenance plan or multi-user subscription, choose a trade-in offer.


Instead of a serial number, we make it easy to access your subscriptions. Admins assign subscriptions to their users with Autodesk Account. Users then access their products by signing in. Get help with account management.

  • What happened to perpetual licenses?

    As of January 2016, Autodesk stopped selling new perpetual licenses. In May 2017, we stopped selling maintenance plans. All Autodesk software is available to buy as a subscription on a plan.

    If you are a subscriber with single-user access or have a maintenance plan for a stand-alone license, you can use your existing serial numbers or Autodesk ID to activate and access software on any device you choose, including home devices.

    If you are a subscriber with multi-user access or have a maintenance plan for a network license, you can request a companion license or borrow a license from the server for employees to activate and use software at home.
