SolidWorks - Student Access


Accessing SolidWorks Student Licenses


SolidWorks Student Licenses

Each year, as part of our campus license, UW-Platteville is allotted a limited number of SolidWorks Student Access Licenses we can distribute to our students on a first come, first served basis.

To access the 2023-2024 Academic Version of Solidworks go to to download the software.

  1. Check the box for Yes.  The serial number you receive will start with 9020
  2. You will want to select Version 2023 (SP2.1)

To obtain the Serial Number for Solidworks, please contact your professor.
Do not redistribute our license key to non UW-Platteville students.

Additionally, students can connect to the VMWare Horizon View to use SolidWorks remotely.  See the Related Articles tab for using it.
