University of Delaware students, faculty, and staff can download software licensed for their use from UDeploy.

Mathematica for Faculty and Staff

The University of Delaware has purchased an unlimited site license from Wolfram Research to allow a copy of Mathematica to be placed on all current faculty, staff and student computers at the University of Delaware.
  • For Personally Owned Computers: When you leave the University, you must remove your copy of the software from your personally owned computer, or replace it with Wolfram Research's commercial version. If you have questions about your eligibility for this program, contact the IT Support Center at 831-6000.
  • For UD-owned computers, you may install a network or stand-alone copy of Mathematica. Use the appropriate download for each and follow the corresponding installation documentation. We recommend a network licensed installation for desktop and lab computers on the UD campus network and a stand-alone installation for laptops.
