MATLAB 2014 Licensing
2014 marks the third and final year of the current Matlab Site-wide license agreement. The 2014 Matlab License Cycle begins Jan. 1st, though 2013 Matlab licenses will continue to allow access to Matlab through Jan 31st.
Over the past two years of the UCB Matlab TAH contract, licensing was provided at no cost to individual licensees. This was made possible through an agreement between the College of Engineering and the Office of the CIO to cover the cost of the site-wide license. For the 2014 license cycle a new funding model has been adopted, and the following changes will be in effect.
License Categories and Types
Individual Licenses – Individual licenses will entitle the Named User to Matlab and all of the toolboxes available through the UCB TAH agreement. This license will also allow for the install of Matlab on multiple systems for the exclusive use of the Named User. Individual Licenses are available in two types: Networked and Stand-alone. Networked licenses are recommended, but Stand-alone licenses are available for situations where network connectivity is unreliable.
Classroom Licenses – Classroom licenses will be available at a reduced cost for “use in on-campus instruction labs used solely for classroom instruction of students.” Classroom licenses are associated with computers and not individuals (machine licenses). Every machine on which Matlab is installed must have a license. Use of the products for any other purposes, such as research by faculty and staff, is not allowed.
College of Engineering
CoE Faculty, Staff and Students should submit the College of Engineering 2104 Matlab License request to obtain their Matlab licensing. If a request has already been submitted using the standard form, there is no need to submit the CoE form.
All other terms and conditions of use apply.
For more information see the Matlab FAQ's page
Purchasing a 2014 Matlab License
Requests for Matlab licenses should be submitted using the UCB Matlab License Request Google form. Licenses may be purchased using a department COA chartstring.
Students requesting licensing for UCB-owned computers may use their CARS accounts to purchase Matlab Licenses (proof of UCB-ownership of the target system is required). To purchase a license using a CARS account, submit the 2014 Matlab License Request-CARS form.
Departmental License Servers
Departments may choose to maintain their own license servers. In these cases Individual Licenses must be purchased in sufficient quantity to cover all persons who will access Matlab via the license server. Sharing of concurrent “seat licenses” is not permitted. An “option file” will be provided to help ensure that the license server does not exceed the number of purchased licenses.
Groups maintaining their own License Servers can indicate that preference in the license request form. Software Central will work with the department contact to activate the server for the 2014 cycle.
