How to Get Mathematica

Mathematica is currently installed in the following locations:

Computer labs: Lakeview Lab, Teaching Lab, CSS Lab, Center for Creativity, Bush 301 and Bush 310

Mathematica can also be installed on:

  • Faculty and staff personally owned machines
    Fill out this form to request a home-use license from Wolfram.

  • Student personally owned machines
    Students can buy discounted licenses through Wolfram's Web Store, but if you're teaching with Mathematica, or a significant quantity of students will be purchasing licenses, please contact Troy Schaudt at Wolfram Research for better discounts.

Are you interested in putting Mathematica elsewhere? Please let IT or Troy Schaudt at Wolfram Research know.
