Mathematica is freely available to all University-owned machines.

On our UMIACS-supported Linux hosts, Mathematica can be accessed through our Modules.

  • The command module add mathematica will add the default version of Mathematica to your Environment.
  • To see the versions of Mathematica that are available use the command module avail mathematica.
  • To add a specific version of Mathematica to your Environment (i.e. Mathematica 12.0) use the command module add mathematica/12.0
  • Further information can be found on our Modules page.

For UMIACS-supported Windows machines, or other self-supported University-owned equipment, please contact staff.


There is no automated way to activate Mathematica across our domain. As a result, each computer will have to be registered once against our hosted license server. Any user can go through this process, and it should persist until the host is reinstalled.

  • Upon being prompted, click "Other ways to activate" in the bottom row:
    Mathematica 10 Activation Screen 1

  • Click "Connect to a network license server":
    Mathematica 10 Activation Screen 2

  • Enter "" as the license server. Click "Activate":
    Mathematica 10 Activation Screen 3

  • Accept the terms, and click ok:
    Mathematica 10 Activation Screen 4
  • Mathematica should now be activated for that machine.
