How do I request a copy of Wolfram Mathematica? 

Wolfram Mathematica is Wolfram’s original, flagship product-primarily aimed at technical computing for R&D and education. 

Bates College provides faculty and staff with two licensing options for the installation and use of Wolfram Mathematica

Faculty and Staff:
Please contact the IT Help Desk via email at or submit an Online Service Request to have Wolfram Mathematica installed on your Bates owned computer.

Once the IT Help Desk receives your request, a Technology Support Specialist will contact you to review your use of Wolfram Mathematica and will work with you to determine the best licensing/installation option for your specific needs.

Dependent on your usage of Wolfram Mathematica, you may be eligible to request a Home-Use Mathematica License for the installation and use on a personally owned computer. 

Licensing for the installation and use of Wolfram Mathematica is not available for student personally owned computers. Students can access Wolfram Mathematica from any of the college’s on-campus computer labs. Wolfram also provides purchasing/licensing options for students. Please visit the Wolfram website for additional details.
