Any institution whose purpose directly relates to learning, teaching, and/or training may qualify. Educational purposes do not include commercial, professional, or any other for-profit purpose (see full terms)

We want students to use our most advanced features, so they can take that experience to their future workplaces.

Support note

Free GitLab Ultimate and Gold accounts do not include support. However, you can purchase support for 95% off, at $4.95 per user per month.

Additional information

  • Only educational institutions can apply. Every student's application will, therefore, be rejected.

  • The number of seats is the number of different users that will use this license in the next year.
  • These licenses need to be renewed annually.
  • If you have any other questions regarding this program, feel free to reach us at
