Free BIM software for students

On this page, you will find step-by-step guide how to get an educational version of Archicad. We also tried to point out the important points to pay attention to during registration and installation. We know that sometimes an installation process can be a little bit boring, so we decided to add more GIFs – we hope it will help!

💡 Important! It is easier to get the official EDU version of Archicad than to look for a "cracked" version of Archicad on other sites. In addition, using "pirated" copies of the software violates the law.

GRAPHISOFT company (Archicad developers) provide educational versions free of charge to three categories of users:

  • Students (of Schools, Colleges and Universities)

  • Teachers

  • Schools

If you didn't find yourself in the list, but you still want to try Archicad – you can get a 30-day trial version of Archicad for free right 👉 here.
