Employee Personal Computer Installation

Individual academic users paid by UT Dallas (including Faculty, Academic or Research Staff, PhD candidates, TAs, and RAs) can install a standalone copy on non-networked systems, laptops, and home systems. Administrative staff are not eligible for stand-alone installs.

In order to use a standalone license, also known as "Designated Computer Activation," you must set up a Mathworks Account using your email address and send a notification to

TAH license administrators will associate your account with the university’s license. Once your account is associated with the license you will be able to activate your software upon installation.

Mathworks accounts can be set up at

Network licenses should be used for fixed-location networked on-campus computers as is current practice, such as for computer labs. This allows the license to be centrally managed.

Student Personal Computer Installation

Students other than PhD candidates, TAs, or RAs are not eligible for standalone licenses. However, they can buy a student version for use on personal computers from the UTD Tech Store.

The student version is not as robust as the full program available on UT Dallas owned computers, and therefore does not have all of the same features. It does include many of the essential tools found in the full version.

For more information on the student version, follow this link to the UTD Technology Store, login with your NetID and password, and search for the MATLAB software.
