Autodesk Site License at Harvard is managed by University Planning. For more information, contact Peter Siebert of the University Planning Office, who serves as Autodesk Site License Manager.

Autodesk has recently announced some important changes to licensing of their products for educational institutions. Going forward, licenses for educational/academic purposes will be FREE, but non-academic uses such as facilities maintenance, operations, utilities, etc. will no longer be allowed under the academic license. Instead, licenses for non-academic/facility purposes must be purchased at the commercial rate.

Each user or group of users will have to make its own arrangements with Autodesk or an authorized reseller to procure Autodesk software. Your options depend on whether your use falls into the “academic” or “commercial” category. Academic users may procure free licenses through the Academic Resource Center (ARC) http://www.autodesk.com/education/free-software/academic-resource-center.
