Install 64-bit processing with student license ArcMap 10.6

I'm working with a large dataset and it's been recommended to me I try using Background Geoprocessing (64-bit) as a strategy to improve the performance of my analysis.

 

Unfortunately, I can't really find any information from ESRI on installing this. There is a post on stack exchange about this topic. It mentions that a student license did not have access to 64-bit background geoprocessing in ArcMap 10.2, but that it was added through service pack 10.2.1. I'm using a student license with ArcMap 10.6, downloaded from esri. When I return to the "ArcGIS for Desktop Student Trial" download page, there is no option for downloading Background Geoprocessing (64-bit).

 

Where can I find the installer for this support?
