Math Faculty/Researchers/Graduate Students

  • Available in the AP&M 2331 department computer lab.
  • Available on the department compute servers/clusters.
  • UCSD-owned computers:
    • Networked - Contact mathhelp@math.ucsd.edu to install a department floating concurrent network license of MATLAB. This is the default for department-managed computers.
      • To use this department license of MATLAB from off-campus, you must FIRST login to the UCSD VPN Server with the UCSD AnyConnect VPN Client in "allthruucsd" group mode BEFORE launching MATLAB.
    • Non-network-dependent - FREE - Request a MATLAB TAH Campus License via ETS. Licenses must be renewed annually. Initial license activation requires network access.
    • Non-network-dependent plus vendor tech support - Contact mathhelp@math.ucsd.edu to purchase a standalone academic license of MATLAB directly from MathWorks. Renewing support annually is highly recommended to obtain future version upgrades at lower cost.
  • Personally-owned computers:
  • Web - Available at MATLAB Online (request a MATLAB TAH Campus License via ETS first).

All Students

  • Available in some ETS Computer Labs.
  • Available remotely via the ETS Virtual Computing Labs.
    • To use the ETS Virtual Computing Labs from off-campus, you must FIRST login to the UCSD VPN Server with the UCSD AnyConnect VPN Client in "allthruucsd" group mode BEFORE launching the VMware Horizon Client to login to the ETS Virtual Computing Labs.

Math Faculty/Instructors

  • CoCalc for Instruction — To use CoCalc for an official Registrar-listed MATH course, please submit a CINFO Request to ETS and request an appropriate CoCalc Course Package (e.g. 1 "Standard Large Course" for up to 250 students) for your expected student enrollment and workload. Contact mathhelp@math.ucsd.edu for questions about the CINFO process.
    • Past instructors have reported that the "Standard" plans with the "Member Hosting" + "Shared RAM" + "Shared CPU" upgrades provide sufficient performance improvements over the "Free" and "Basic" plans for class purposes. Since an UCSD academic quarter is 11-weeks long and spans across 3-months, it's usually most cost effective to purchase a "4-months" course plan block and special request that it start at beginning of the quarter. CoCalc pricing subject to change.
  • CoCalc for Research — Register and login to CoCalc for free and test your code first. Review the latest CoCalc Pricing. Determine which Personal Subscription Plan or Dedicated VM option is appropriate for your workload and budget. Contact mathhelp@math.ucsd.edu for more information.
