How to Obtain

Visit the MIT MATLAB Software Page for full information on licensing and acquiring the software through MIT.

Commercial use of MathWorks products is not covered by our Campus-Wide License, so if you are using a commercial license, please continue to do so.

Software Download for Windows, MacOS or UNIX

Touchstone authentication is required to determine your eligibility as an MIT student, faculty or staff member. You still must register for a MATLAB account in order to access and manage MATLAB.

  1. Visit the Massachusetts Institute of Technology Campus Portal to download the software.
  2. Under the Get MATLAB section, click Sign in to get started.
  3. You will be asked to create a MathWorks Account. Once you do that, you will be associated to our MATLAB license and will be able to:
    • Download and activate software on your personal computer
    • Start using MATLAB Online from a web browser

On Athena

MATLAB is available to all MIT Kerberos account holders via Athena.

How to Use

MATLAB's Onramp training modules are two-hour self-paced course to help new users come up to speed on the basics of using MATLAB and Simulink products.

Troubleshooting and FAQ's

Have Questions or Still Need Help?

IS&T and MATLAB can not assist you with your problem sets or research, only issues related to licensing, installing and running the software.
