when trying to create a virtual network with a student account for a project, I get an error as follows:

{"code":"DisallowedProvider","message":"The operation is not permitted for namespace 'Microsoft.Network'. List of permitted provider namespaces is 'Microsoft.Authorization,Microsoft.Billing,Microsoft.Education,Microsoft.Features,microsoft.insights,Microsoft.NotificationHubs,Microsoft.Resources,Microsoft.Sql,Microsoft.Subscription,microsoft.support,microsoft.visualstudio,Microsoft.Web'."}

I did some searching and someone said "Sometimes, the Microsoft.Network provider might not be registered with your subscription. You can register it by going to Subscriptions -> Your Subscription -> Resource providers -> Find Microsoft.Network -> and click Register."

when I go to that location, Microsoft.Network is not available as an item to register. I am assuming this is why I can no longer create new virtual networks. This has worked fine in the past.

    Hello @Neil Torda ,

    Welcome to Microsoft Q&A Platform. Thank you for reaching out & hope you are doing well.

    I understand that you are unable to create a virtual network with your student account/subscription.

    As mentioned in the Frequently asked questions about the Education Hub,

    Subscriptions provide access to Azure services. Azure for Students gives you $100 credit for 12 months and includes access to more than 25 free services, including compute, network, storage, and databases. Any charges incurred during this period are deducted from the credit. To continue using Azure services after you've exhausted your $100 credit, you must either renew (if you are 12 months in) or upgrade to a pay-as-you-go subscription.

    If you decide not to upgrade at the end of 12 months or after you've exhausted your $100 credit, whichever occurs first, any products you've deployed are decommissioned and you won't be able to access them. You have 90 days from the end of your free subscription to upgrade to a pay-as-you-go subscription.

    So, I would request you to check if you've exhausted your $100 credit, as this could be the reason, you no longer have access to the additional 25 free services including compute, network, storage etc.

    You can see your remaining credit on the Azure Sponsorships portal.

    Kindly let us know if the above helps or you need further assistance on this issue.
