Important Information

Matlab Online

Access to Matlab and Simulink is also available online, without the need to install any software.  To access this service you will need to login with your Matlab user ID at https://uk.mathworks.com/products/matlab-online.html

The first time you use Matlab Online, you will need to provide an activation code to link your Matlab user ID to Newcastle University's licence.  Please contact the  IT Service Desk to request the code, indicating that your request is for a Matlab Online code.

Matlab Toolboxes

NB: Our Overseas Campuses are unable to use the software license we have here in the UK.  Matlab can instead be purchased by University staff in these regions via a local distributor.
