You may obtain MATLAB kits from \\\OxKits_MATLAB\ on the Physics Network System using the instructions for obtaining kits.

MATLAB may be used on any University-owned system connected to the main University network. Standalone licences may be used on any University-owned system when not connected to the University network.

Undergraduate and postgraduate students can obtain free standalone MATLAB kits and licences ( Details of Student Licences ) for use on their personal systems.

A MATLAB licence is needed and requires authentication with your Physics-wide network account.

Information is available from OUCS on MATLAB licensing, the operation of the concurrent licence server and details of the current numbers of toolbox licences.

Instructions on how to obtain standalone MATLAB and MATLAB toolbox licences are available.

There are some outline installation instructions for MATLAB 7.5 and before and for MATLAB 7.6 and later which may be useful for new users.
