See "Mass Download Procedure" for instructions on how to get a concurrent license for multiple computers here


  Step 1: Access Software Library
Login here
Enter Net ID and password
Click once on "Matlab", then scroll to the bottom
Fine an installer that matches your operating system
File download may take more than 10 minutes depending on your connection
Note: download options are organized form oldest to newest and increase in GB file size
Step 2: Initiate Matlab Installation
   Step 3: Unzip Desktop File
Right click on desktop icon
Follow "7-zip" option
Click "extract files"
Select file location
Another desktop icon will appear adjacent to the zipped file
   Step 4: Choose file extraction location
I chose my removable external hard drive for easy access
   Step 5: Locate the Exe. Installation File
Open the unzipped file (which I placed on my external hard drive in an earlier step)
Click the file labelled "setup" (the one with the matlab icon on the left)
Troubleshooting: if your file is not an executable file (.exe) and instead opens to a text file, try repeating the unzipping process or downloading an alternative zip file processor like 7-zip here
   Step 6: Navigate Pre-Installation Process
Allow the program to make changes to your device
   Step 7: Access Activation Key
Select "I need to create an account" (which requires an activation key)
You will find the activation key for Matlab on the campus software library under "Support Information" in the Matlab section
Copy and paste this number into the File Installation Key area
   Step 8: Install
Depending on your connection, this process may exceed 10 minutes


 Step 9: Confirm Selection, Launch!
