As of Fall 2016, UCSB has signed a new MathWorks Matlab TAH (Total Academic Headcount) license. This license is available to all UCSB Faculty, Staff, and Students. Visitors or visiting researchers may access the software in a number of labs or on their hosting department's UC-owned computers. Only UCSB employees and students may download Matlab to their personal computers.
