There has been a recent change in Autodesk products and licensing, resulting in changes to how it is distributed to the campus community.  Because Autodesk no longer offers a site-wide license to their master suite, instead of downloading it from TigerWare, it will now be obtained directly from Autodesk.  As a member of a higher education institution, you can create an individual account on the Audodesk.  Download Autodesk Master Suite software FREE OF CHARGE.  

  • NOTE: You should be aware that the version from Autodesk will be the educational version which does add a watermark to the generated files stating that the file was generated with the educational version of an Autodesk product.
