Squarespace student discount

If you're a current student of an eligible school, you can receive 50% off your first year of a Squarespace website billing plan. The education discount is verified and distributed by Student Beans.

Terms and eligibility

These terms apply to the student discount:

  • The discount is 50% off the price of the first annual plan purchased on your site. Our Personal, Business, and Commerce billing plans are eligible. Squarespace Domains, monthly website plans, Mobile Start plans, and reactivated sites aren't eligible for the discount.
  • The discount applies to the first payment for your site. If your site auto-renews, or if you upgrade or downgrade your plan, you'll be charged the full price for the next payment.
  • The discount isn’t valid in combination with other offer codes.
Tip: If you made your first payment for a new site within the last seven days, you can request a retroactive discount.

To receive the discount, you must meet these eligibility requirements:

  • Enroll as a current full-time student at an eligible school. The discount isn't available to alumni, faculty members, staff, or high school students.
  • Register with Student Beans and complete their verification process.
  • Redeem the offer code provided by Student Beans before its expiration date. Offer codes are valid for the remainder of the calendar year. You can get one offer code every 12 months through Student Beans.
Tip: We suggest obtaining the offer code from Student Beans when you’re ready to pay for your site.
