Notion for Students

Notion is a versatile productivity and organization tool that allows individuals and teams to create, collaborate, and manage tasks, projects, and notes in one centralized location. It is a web-based application that offers a range of features, including note-taking, project management, task tracking, knowledge management, and database building.


Students do not have access to paid-for Notion accounts or the LIS staff Notion intranet.

If you'd like to use Notion whilst studying at LIS you can sign up for a no-cost education account as long as you associate your Notion account with your email address.


With the Education Plan, you'll have access to all Plus Plan features mentioned above, except you will not be able to add additional members to your workspace.


To take advantage of the free Plus Plan for students:

  • First, you'll need to make sure that the email address associated with your Notion account is the one provided by LIS.

  • You can change your email on file by clicking Settings & members in your sidebar, then My account.

  • Next, navigate to the Upgrade tab in Settings & members. If you're already on a paid plan, click on Plans.

  • Scroll down, and you should see a button that says Get free education plan (you won't see this if you're on a Plus Plan or Enterprise Plan already):

  • If your school is recognized by our system, you'll be upgraded automatically and you're good to go!

  • If your school is not recognized by our system, you'll see a pop-up message informing you why.

  • First, make sure that your Notion account is associated with your educational email address by clicking the Change email button.

  • If you're still seeing this pop-up after changing your email, your university may not be on our list. Our support team can help! Just use the ? button at the bottom right of the Notion app to send us a message, or you can email us at

  • If you have a promo code for a free education plan, you can enter it into the same form to automatically turn on the premium features for free.
