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.

Additional information

  • 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.
  • Only educational institutions can apply. Every student's application will, therefore, be rejected.
  • We can allow only one license per institution, so make sure to request enough seats for all departments that are interested in this license.
  • The number of seats is the number of different users that will use this license during the next year.
  • These licenses need to be renewed annually.
  • If you have any additional question regarding this program, feel free to reach us at
