Introducing Canva for Campus

We’re excited to announce the launch of Canva for Campus, our new college and tertiary education offering, bringing the power of visual communication to colleges and universities around the world.


As visual communication becomes a part of everyday life, there has never been a more important time for classrooms around the world to embrace the power of digital and design literacy. Not only is visual communication an essential skill for today’s workplace, it’s also an enabler for creativity and collaboration.

We’ve seen this firsthand through the rapid adoption of Canva for Education in K-12 classrooms across the globe. Today, more than 30 million teachers and students are using our platform to create everything from classroom resources to assignments, videos, posters, websites, documents, presentations, and a whole lot more.

But we know the importance of creativity, learning and collaboration doesn’t end after a K-12 education. In fact, these skills become even more crucial in a tertiary setting for college and university students preparing to step into careers in an increasingly visual and digital world.

That’s why today, we’re incredibly excited to announce the launch of Canva for Campus(opens in a new tab or window), our new tertiary education offering for colleges and universities around the world.

With Canva for Campus, we’re bringing the power of Canva’s entire visual communication platform to colleges and universities through a new subscription. From team management and collaboration to brainstorming and our entire Visual Worksuite, Canva for Campus brings all of the magic from our fully fledged Canva for Teams(opens in a new tab or window) product, designed with schools and universities in mind.

We’re excited to have already launched Canva for Campus with Dartmouth College, Vanderbilt University and the University of Redlands. And from today, all college and university institutions across the globe can unlock free access to Canva for their students when they begin purchasing Canva for Campus licenses for staff. Depending on the size of your student population, colleges and universities with a certain number of staff licenses graduate into a full Canva Campus, unlocking free access to the platform for entire student cohorts. You’ll only ever need to pay for staff accounts.

From students creating engaging assignments to teachers developing interactive learning resources, to faculty administrators streamlining workflows and creating effective communications, Canva for Campus has been designed to empower everyone on campus.
