Mathematica

FAU Mathematica Site License

Mathematica software can be installed on all University-owned faculty or staff computers, faculty and staff personally owned computers, and student owned computers. Additionally Mathematica can be installed in laboratory workstations on any FAU campus.

Downloading the software for installation on your University owned or personally owned computer (Windows, Apple Mac, or Linux) requires that you create an account at the Wolfram User Portal.

Here is the home page for the Wolfram Research web site.

Faculty/Staff Campus Installation

For faculty and staff University-owned computers, request Mathematica via the Wolfram User Portal. Use your fau.edu email address when requesting the license. An email will be sent to you with information about downloading the software and containing the license data you’ll need to run the software.

Faculty/Staff Home Installation

For faculty and staff personally-owned computers, request a “home-use” license of Mathematica via the Wolfram User Portal, using the site license number L3297-0211. Use your fau.edu email address when requesting the license. An email will be sent to you with information about downloading the software and containing the license data you’ll need to run the software.

Student Home Installation

For student-owned computers, request Mathematica for Students via the Wolfram User Portal. Use your fau.edu email address when requesting the license. An email will be sent to you with information about downloading the software and containing the license data you’ll need to run the software.

Lab Installation

FAU computers which are connected to the FAU network can poll the license server. Install Mathematica, and the first time you run the program, you’ll see an activation screen. Click the “Other ways to activate” button; choose “Connect to a license server,” and enter “64volts.eng.fau.edu” for the server name, and click “Activate.”
