The University of Texas at Austin



The University of Texas at Austin has a MathWorks Total Academic Headcount (TAH) Campus Option license for MATLAB, Simulink, and 23 companion toolboxes, effective January 1, 2013.


Under TAH there is campus-wide access on university-owned computers by all faculty, staff, and students. Faculty and academic staff are also entitled to install TAH software on their personally-owned computers. Students are expressly prohibited from installing TAH software on their personally-owned computers. However, students who are university employees (e.g., teaching assistant, graduate research assistant) are considered academic staff and are allowed to install TAH on their personally-owned computers. Anyone who has been using commercial MathWorks licenses must continue to do so; TAH is for academic use only.


The TAH license provides unlimited use of the following applications and toolboxes. Individual units or researchers may require additional applications or toolboxes; please contact your respective unit to confirm or arrange availability of MathWorks software not on this list.

Student Version

MathWorks offers a student version that includes MATLAB, Simulink, and 10 toolboxes. It is available for purchase at the Campus Computer Store. For more information see the MathWorks website.


TAH is available at no cost to individual faculty and academic staff through a campus cooperative. Individual colleges, schools, and units contribute to the cooperative based on a mix of TAH product purchases in 2010, 2011, and 2012 and their actual use thereafter. TAH is evaluated annually for continued use by the cooperative funding the program.
