Autodesk Subscription Home Use FAQ & Eligible Product List

Mar 31, 2014


Subscription customers' access to home use licenses of Autodesk software offers flexibility. With Home Use rights, you can install the same license on both a home and an office computer. This document summarizes some of the common questions about the Home Use benefit. Home Use is not entitled for all products. Please refer to the list of eligible products below. For complete terms and conditions of the Home Use benefit, refer to the Subscription Terms and Conditions.


1. What is Home Use?

Home Use is a benefit available to Autodesk Maintenance Subscription customers. Home Use allows employees to install a second copy of the software program at a home location away from the office for work related to business, personal education, or for training needs, under the conditions set out in the Subscription Terms and Conditions.

2. Who is eligible?

Maintenance Subscription customers with one or more eligible products on a current Subscription contract may use the benefit. Network license holders must apply to obtain a companion standalone serial number.

3. What products are eligible?

Most Autodesk products are eligible. In general, enterprise / server based products, and those that do not require activation, are not eligible for Home Use. NFR (Not for Resale) licenses are not eligible. For a complete list, refer to the Home Use - Eligible Product List below.

4. How do I apply for a Home Use license?

Contract Managers and Software Coordinators have access to the step by step instructions which can be found under the Contract Administration link from the Subscription home page within Subscription Center. See How to request a license to use Autodesk software at home.

5. What if I have a Multiseat Standalone license?

The Home Use Program treats Multi-seat Standalone licenses like standalone – you can use your primary license serial number to activate an installation on a home machine.

6. Am I eligible for Home Use with a Desktop Subscription agreement?

Desktop Subscription does not require a separate license for Home use.  This functionality allows customers to install and use on multiple machines based on their user ID.

7. Where do I go for more information?

For more information regarding Home use please login to Subscription Center at Once logged, in click on the Subscription Administration link found on the left hand navigation.
