How to Get Mathematica Software Through FAU’s Site License

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. Alternatively, there are two other options available for obtaining a valid license.

  1. 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.”
  2. If you are an administrator of a computer laboratory who has a disk image that is replicated on many lab machines, there is a “lab version” of Mathematica better suited for that type of installation. Contact Loren Gibson, loren.gibson@fau.edu for more information.

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.

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.
