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:
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.
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.
