What is happening? The University of Waterloo has obtained a site license for MATLAB and Simulink until June 30, 2020. All faculty, researchers, students and staff are eligible to download and install Matlab on their personally-owned computers, university-issued computers, or use Matlab Online in a web browser. Please note that commercial use of MathWorks products is not covered by our Campus-Wide License; if you are using a commercial license, please continue to do so. 
 

To download or use MATLAB online:

  1. Go to the University of Waterloo’s MATLAB Portal.
  2. Click 'Sign in to get started' under the Get MATLAB and Simulink section. 
    1. If you have an existing MathWorks account (set up with your uwaterloo.ca email), use your userid@uwaterloo.ca email address to log in.
    2. If you do not have an existing MathWorks account, or your MathWorks account was not set up with a userid@uwaterloo.ca email address, create an account using your @uwaterloo.ca email address.
  3. Once your account is set up, you will be linked to our MATLAB license and will be able to:
    1. Download and activate software on your personal computer.
    2. Start using MATLAB Online from a Web browser without installing anything.
