Student GIS Licenses

How to Access

McGill students are entitled to licenses for Esri’s GIS software suite (including ArcGIS Pro and ArcGIS Desktop) through the Geographic Information Centre (GIC). Individual licenses are otherwise very costly, so this is a great opportunity.  Contact the Centre at or visit them directly on the 5th floor of Burnside Hall. 


Licenses are given out in the form of one-year, single-use authentication files, but you can obtain a new one in the future.
