Products for Personal Use (Faculty/Staff/Student Home Use)

Adobe product purchases for student personal use may be purchased through two methods. Please note that product pricing varies between the two options. Users should select the most appropriate option based on price and timing of need for the product.  Product is available for immediate delivery at the UAB Barnes & Noble Bookstore, but must be shipped if purchased from CDW-G via Kivuto. 

1. UAB Barnes & Noble Bookstore: A limited number of titles are available for immediate purchase at the Bookstore and include Acrobat Pro, Creative Suite Design Premium, and Photoshop. Please contact the Bookstore directly for pricing at (205) 996-2665 or check the website. Only purchases for home/personal use on non-UAB owned systems should be made at the Bookstore.

2. CDW-G: A larger selection of titles is available for online purchase through CDW-G (via the Kivuto webstore). All purchases include media. Purchases are made directly with CDW-G and ship directly to the user. A valid email address is required to purchase through CDW-G. Only purchases for home/personal use on non-UAB owned systems should be made from the CDW-G link below.

  • Login using your BlazerID and PW.
  • Once at the website select the Student tab
  • Products other than Adobe may be available from the CDW-G site, however, only the Adobe products are discounted through a UAB agreement. Other products are strictly offered at CDW-G's normal pricing.

Faculty and staff may order Adobe's Creative Cloud subscription (or just the Acrobat Pro subscription) for home/personal use through the Kivuto webstore.  Pricing for home-use is the same as that provided to UAB faculty and staff for installation on UAB systems.
