Exciting new developments are on the horizon affecting Adobe Creative Cloud Software and campus-wide printing. These are exemplary ways we can work together to improve services for students, faculty and staff.

Widespread Availability for Adobe Creative Cloud Software

By pooling resources from the Provost, Information Technology Services (ITS), and other departments on campus who were already purchasing their own licensing for Adobe Creative Cloud, UNCG will be able to offer the Creative Cloud suite on all university-owned computers (both Macs and PCs). Faculty and staff will also be able to install the software on a “work-at-home” computer.

This use of resources is not only more cost effective, saving over 80% on standard pricing, it allows us to continue widespread use of this industry-standard software suite for students, faculty and staff.

Adobe Creative Cloud also includes licenses for Acrobat Pro. Restrictions on usage will no longer be enforced after the switch to Creative Cloud.

More information will be made available as plans are finalized. Visit Get Adobe for the latest on Adobe Creative Cloud licensing at UNCG.

Print Anywhere from Most Any Device

Pharos managed print software delivers a robust printing solution that enables location-independent printing from a variety of devices (laptops, tablets and smartphones). Some departments already use Pharos for printing. We are adopting the Pharos solution campus-wide, improving access to printing and printer security for all students, faculty and staff. ITS expects departments to be able to migrate to the new printing environment beginning in April.
