Autodesk may not be offering 2013 anymore since 2014 came out.  You can download a free trial of 2014 here:

I'm not sure if that's what you're looking for, or if there's a special free educational version that you're talking about.

System specs: AutoCAD 2015 64-bit SP1, Windows 7 64-bit SP1, Intel Core i7-2600K, 16GB RAM, Crucial M4 SSD, AMD FirePro V4900, 2 Dell Monitors (2560x1600)

The student download website appears to be broken in IE.
I then tried with Chrome and the list was there.

Hello Waylon,


We were experiencing in the Education Community which was not allowing users to select their school during the registration process and automatically associating Magenta Academy. In turn this caused certain products not to show up and an "Error assigning serial number to product: This is an operation implementation generated fault" message to display.


With that being said this has just been resolved and the site is once again fully functional. In order to access the site benefits, please create a new Education Community account using a different email address as your existing profile is corrupt.
