Can I Get SOLIDWORKS Support as a Student?

While our Technical Support hotline is only open for our commercial customers with a valid SOLIDWORKS subscription, we do offer Technical Support to educational institutions.

Unfortunately, we are unable to provide support directly to individual students. If you are a lecturer or professor, then please contact our Technical Support team for assistance.

However, we are passionate about inspiring the next generation of designers and engineers and help you to enhance your skills.

So here are 5 ways that you can get help with SOLIDWORKS as a student.


If you are seeking help with SOLIDWORKS modelling, performance, or technical issues, then your first port of call should be your lecturer, professor, or teacher.

We are able to directly assist educational professionals with a SOLIDWORKS subscription with their SOLIDWORKS software and related design queries.

Your professors or teaching assistants in engineering or design-related courses may have extra information about SOLIDWORKS support available to students.


Explore your university/school’s website or student portal to see if they have a dedicated section for software support, engineering resources, or technology partnerships.

Look for any information related to SOLIDWORKS or CAD software.

You can always check out the r/solidworks subreddit, or our video and blog tutorials to see if your question has already been answered.


Some student engineering clubs or organisations may have access to SOLIDWORKS resources through partnerships or collaborations.

Joining these clubs can provide you with valuable information and resources.

Communicating and collaborating with fellow designers and engineers is a great way to share knowledge and find out if anyone you know has the answers!


Our start-up programme helps Entrepreneurs to get started with their design with FREE SOLIDWORKS software or access to the 3DEXPERIENCE platform.

If you have an idea or project that you believe can change the world or the way we live, check to see if you are eligible to join our programme.

Start-ups and Entrepreneurs can enjoy FREE access to the entire SOLIDWORKS portfolio, including simulation and rendering packages, alongside access to our Technical Support network of expert SOLIDWORKS engineers.


Our website and YouTube channel are full of helpful tutorials and examples to help you expand your SOLIDWORKS knowledge and resolve common challenges.

There are plenty of free resources available to you that will answer your questions and advance your SOLIDWORKS skills so you can be the best in class!

Looking for More Tips?

Sign up to our CPD-accredited training courses.

It doesn’t matter whether you’re a complete beginner or are intimately familiar with CAD, our friendly and expert trainers are ready to help you get the most out of SOLIDWORKS, either online or in a classroom local to you.

We also have a load of free SOLIDWORKS tutorials across our site, or you can check out our YouTube channel for more tips and tricks.

Don’t forget, with a SOLIDWORKS subscription, you can contact our expert Technical Support team to help you out with new commands and modelling tips.
