A number of different licensing models exist within Miro, however there are three levels available to University members.

  • Anyone can register for a free Miro account
  • Teaching staff and students are eligible to apply for a Miro education license
  • Non-teaching staff can apply for an enterprise license, the current cost of which is $150 per licensed user per year (around £110 +VAT).

For full details of the differences please see miro.com/pricing/.

In summary a free account is limited in terms of board sharing and the number which can be created, the benefits of an education or enterprise account are that you can share boards via a link or with a named individual, create unlimited boards and have the ability to back up or export boards.



To request a free Miro account please sign up with your email address at miro.com/login


Teaching staff or students wishing to obtain an education license should first sign up for a free account using the details above. Having set up a free account you should follow these instructions on how to upgrade your account. In order to prove the University's accreditation status we have been advised that a screenshot of the appropriate section of the 'Check if your university or college can award a degree' page will suffice.


For non-teaching staff requiring Miro access, a Service Request form will be developed for this, however in the meantime if you would like to request enterprise access please email Ian Teasdale.
