MATLAB For The University of Oxford
The University of Oxford has a Total Academic Headcount (TAH) license for MATLAB, Simulink, and add-on products. Faculty, researchers, and students may use these products for teaching, research, and learning. The license allows individuals to install the products on university-owned equipment, as well as personally owned computers.
This is an annual (1 year) license.
All products for academic use are now available in the MATLAB TAH license full suite. The Full Suite includes 83 toolboxes + any new available toolboxes to be released. See the end of the document.
The license includes access to MATLAB Academy Online Training Suite (MAOTS) TAH. This includes over 60 hours of online training courses for different levels and across different subject categories.
Allows access to MATLAB from a web browser using MATLAB Online for Total Academic Headcount (TAH) Licenses
Faculty and staff get technical support and access to new features during the term of the license.
Students get support for installation and activation, but otherwise should use online support resources, including MATLAB Answers.
The campus-wide license options are for academic use only and may not be used for commercial work.

License to Use
Undergraduate Student and other taught Students
A University Department or College.
Designated Computer License
This is the simplest license to obtain. All you need is your Oxford University Single Sign On user name and password. It is the only MATLAB license available on computers owned by undergraduates and taught students. An Individual License is restricted to one individual user name on the computer. Users with different user names will not be able to use MATLAB. So an individual license should not be used in classrooms or on any computer that requires more than one user to use MATLAB.
To install MATLAB using an individual license, see http://www.eng.ox.ac.uk/~labejp/TAH/MATLAB_Install.pdf
The Concurrent License is obtained from a University License Server. So you must have a connection to the University network to use this license. I would recommend using the concurrent license if you have a large collection of computers, such as a computer teaching classroom. The license on each computer is automatically updated when the license on the license server is updated. You do not have to update the license on each computer.
Installation Keys are sent to the Departmental or College MATLAB representative.
There is a list of representatives here .
The Concurrent License MUST NOT be used on computers owned by undergraduates or taught students.
The Designated Computer License is specific to each computer. So when the license is renewed each year, the license on each computer has to be updated. However, it is not restricted to one individual user name like the Individual License.
To use this license, users need to register and download the installation instructions from
A Designated Computer License MUST NOT be used on computers owned by undergraduates or taught students.
MATLAB Online allows you to use MATLAB through a web browser, without downloading and installing MATLAB. It is an online version of MATLAB.
For more information, see
To use MATLAB Online, you first need an account on the MathWorks web site that has been associated with one of the University of Oxford MATLAB license. The easiest way to do this is to register for an Individual License. See http://www.eng.ox.ac.uk/~labejp/TAH/MATLAB_Install.pdf
This includes over 60 hours of online training courses for different levels and across different subject categories.

For general licence problems, first of all look at my Trouble Shooting Guide
MathWorks have a support web site
Faculty and staff get full technical support. Students get support for installation and activation.

To generate a service request, you need the license number. The MATLAB command license
will give you our license number. If MATLAB is not working, look at your account page on the MathWorks web site.
