Default Downloading ProTools with uni iLok


I recently started university again and we are being given an iLok each next week to keep for the year.
I was wondering if there was any way to download ProTools as it doesn't look like there is any way? I understand that I can't use it without the iLok so it will only be for the year but it would be extremely useful to be able to work from home.

The only thing I have even found so far is the free trial but that also needs an iLok ID.

All current versions of Pro Tools can only be downloaded through the AVID account, so no you won't be able to. See this article:


But if the uni are actually giving you the ilok I would assume they're doing so with the intention of you being able to work at home so I would ask them about obtaining installers.
