Agreement permits use of MATLAB for Windows by faculty and staff and student use on university-owned machines. The minimum Operating Systems for MATLAB are Windows 8.1 and later. Disk space is 4-6 GB for a typical installation and at least 2 GB RAM..

The new license server will also require users to use a VPN client when trying to run MATLAB off campus. Users can install the VPN client by going to This is a one time install. Users will then need to run the VPN application anytime they want to use MATLAB from off campus.

The MATLAB software is available for download. If you prefer to install MATLAB via a flash drive rather than the download, the ITS Service Desk has a limited number on hand for checkout. When checking out software media from the Service Desk, we request that the media is returned the next business day from checkout.
