If you’re currently a student in a design program at a recognized Canadian university, college, CEGEP or high school, you’re entitled to a free, one-year license of Vectorworks Designer with Renderworks. To register, simply visit the Vectorworks Student Portal.

We realize you may be on a tight budget and may have purchased your computer with that budget in mind. To avoid disappointment when running Vectorworks, please visit the Vectorworks Knowledgebase to ensure your computer meets the current minimum system requirements. (Note that Chromebooks are not able to run Vectorworks.)

Be sure to upload proof of enrollment when you send in your request, as otherwise you may find yourself with only a 30 day trial!

[Please note: The free Student license of Vectorworks will add a permanent watermark to all files when printed/exported to PDF. Hence, a Student license of the software is not suitable for professional work. Any professional, non-watermarked files that are opened in a Student version of Vectorworks will also have a permanent watermark added.]
