MATLAB is a software environment for numerical computing. At the FSW it is mainly used for building experiments and analyzing data. The former requires the free PsychToolbox add-on. 

Availability, Support and Advice

Leiden University owns a MATLAB Campus license. The license includes MATLAB, Simulink and all toolboxes. The license is available free of charge for both teaching and research, for students and employees of the university.

Matlab at home

  • On personal devices: For use at home, see the instructions here. Note that you have to log in with a Mathworks account (created with your university email) to run MATLAB, and you can only be signed in on one device at a time.
  • On work laptops: t.b.a.


For managed work PC's, MATLAB can be requested for at the ISSC Helpdesk. MATLAB is installed on the computers in the Researchdata analysis room at the FSW. SOLO provides support on MATLAB, albeit only limited for PsychToolbox.
