Mathematica Site License
The University of North Texas
System has entered into a site license with Mathematica on behalf of the Denton
and Dallas campuses of UNT. The UNT Health Science Center opted to be excluded
from this license agreement. Under this agreement, Mathematica is available on
both the Denton and Dallas campuses for unlimited installation on
University-owned machines used for research and instruction. A home-use option
is available for faculty, academic staff, and students at the Denton and Dallas
campuses. Details about accessing and using Mathematica are included below.
How to Get Mathematica
Mathematica is currently installed in the following locations:
- Many General Access Computing lab locations. For more information, see
individual lab information via the GACL
Mathematica can also be installed on:
Faculty/staff school-owned machines
by contacting your
Departmental IT support group.
Faculty/staff personally owned
