The University sometimes has to renew its MATLAB license. For those of you who have installed MATLAB directly or are using a home-use version, you may be prompted to renew the software.

To keep using MATLAB for another year you will need to update your license file.

  1. Open MATLAB (If the license has already expired, the activation client will launch, and you can skip the next step.)
  2. Navigate to Help Menu > Licensing > Activate Software
  3. Choose to Activate using Internet
  4. Once reactivated, you will need to restart MATLAB before the new license file is recognised
