Since the introduction of subscription licenses we are often asked the question as to how this affects the use of Autodesk for practice at home with the home use license.
For clarification this is Autodesk’s official policy on home use from their web site at

“Home Use Rights is a benefit available to Autodesk subscriptions with multi-user access and maintenance plan customers. The benefit provides licenses for home use and allows employees to install and activate the software program at a home location away from the office for work related to business, personal education, or for training needs.
Subscriptions with single-user access home use
All Autodesk software on a subscription with single-user access can be used from any computer. Subscriptions with single-user access are based on a Named User model, which allows you to install and use software on multiple computers and activate software online using an Autodesk Account user name and password.
Home Use Eligibility
Home Use for subscriptions with multi-user access and maintenance plan customers is not available for all products; refer to the Autodesk Home Use Product Eligibility List. In general, enterprise or server-based products (network only products) and those that do not require activation are not eligible for home use. Education and Not for Resale (NFR) licenses are not eligible.
For complete terms and conditions of this benefit, refer to the Autodesk Subscription and Maintenance Plans Terms and Conditions.
Home Use Setup
The Products and Services tab of your Autodesk Account provides options to request a Home Use license depending on license type. Not all products are available in all languages or regions. Home Use is available only for the listed products in your region.
