Getting MatLab


UCSB has a site license for MatLab on a Per-Computer (individual) basis.

What do you need?

  • A Valid UCSBNet ID Account
  • Network Access
  • Minimum of 10 Gigs of disk space
  • Minimum of 4 hours of uninterrupted internet access time.

How to get it?

You will first need to go to the UCSB Software License Site at:

http://software.ucsb.edu/license

You will log in there with your UCSBNetID to verify your status to get the the Special Software Licensing you will have access to, in this case, for MatLab.

This will lead you to a link to connect to BOX to read the MatLab Activation Instructions for your status.  This will have the Activation Key you will need.

From there, we recommend you follow the instructions from that document on how to download and install Matlab.

 


PLEASE NOTE

The MatLab installer will download the MatLab software onto your computer.  The MatLab software is about 7-8 Gigabytes in size, so depending on your network connection, this process can take up to 5 to 6 hours to download (Perhaps longer if you have a really slow connection).

It is HIGHLY recommended that you use a WIRED connection to get Matlab to minimize the time to download and avoid getting a bad download files and a corrupted install.

Activation of the MatLab Software also requires an Internet connection for verification, so you might not be able to run MatLab without an internet connection.

Personal computers owned by guests and visitors to UCSB are not covered by the licensing agreement. Desktops that are owned by UCSB and will stay at UCSB after the guest or visitor leaves are covered under the hosting department at UCSB.  

If you have any problems accessing the instructions or software, please contact the Campus Office of Software Licensing (COSL) at software@lsit.ucsb.edu.

 


SIMPLIFIED INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Read the instructions at http://software.ucsb.edu/license
  2. Log in to your MathWorks Account at mathworks.com, that is associated with your University Email address. If you don’t have an account, create one using your University Email address.
  3. Follow the instructions you read in step 1. If the instructions say "no licenses available" you are not authorized to use this software on your personal computer.  Matlab is installed on most COE linux lab computers for instructional purposes.
