Education - School, College, University
The Education edition of Vectorworks is available for schools, colleges and universities at specially reduced prices.
The Education edition is Vectorworks Designer 2020 which contains all the tools and commands from Architect, Landmark and Spotlight, along with robust rendering capabilities. This means it can fulfill a broad range of curriculum requirements. It is cross platform, so can be installed on both Macintosh and Windows computers.
Files created with the Education version will have a watermark in the border at the top and bottom of the drawing. The watermark will not appear on drawings printed from the institution's network version, but will appear if the drawing is printed from the student or teacher version.
The Education version comes with a network USB dongle (a small hardware protection device) which must be connected to a server or admin machine that is on the same network.
With a network dongle, you can install Vectorworks on any number of computers on the network (sub-nets are OK too), but the dongle will only let the quantity of licenses you have purchased run at one time. For more information or support on network dongles, please click here. There are no set purchasing quantities (such as a 30 pack). You just order the quantity of licenses you need, and the network dongle.
Single teacher copies are also available to teachers or lecturers working at institutions that have Vectorworks installed. These require with a USB dongle each.
Both network and teacher dongles can be re-used for future versions, and so they only need to be purchased once.
Please call or email us if you require a firm quotation for your school, college or university. Upgrade pricing is available to institutions running older versions of Vectorworks.
