The following instructions apply to Standard and Academic Use Licenses.
Requirements to link to a license:
If you do not have the Activation Key or License Number, contact your professor/instructor or License Administrator.
After you have obtained your Activation Key or License Number, go to Link<http://www.mathworks.com/licensecenter/workflows/associate_license My Account with a License>, enter your Activation Key or License Number, and click "Link License."

Does your university provide MATLAB to students? If not then you will need to purchase a MATLAB Student license. (Often the MATLAB Student Suite is a better bargin, but that depends on what you will use MATLAB for.)

My university has Matlab on their computers and the students use as me I use today at my university; I just needed for solving assignments...

There are different kinds of MATLAB licenses. One of the kinds available for Academic use is node-locked for use in a laboratory of computers. Those licenses are locked to the individual computer, but permit any one person at a time to use the license.
Some universities use a Total Academic Headcount license. Those are academic licenses but students are permitted to use them. The university IT would control activating those licenses.

A MATLAB license is required in order to use the software. You can look into purchasing a license at this page:

You can purchase MATLAB Home license, for personal (non-commercial) use.

In order to do that, I would have to create a new company, and buy full-price commercial licenses, and hire you as staff (paying you at least $US 12 per hour plus holiday pay plus sick pay plus employment insurance plus having to track Goods and Services Tax). It would cost me at least $US 15000 to do this, excluding hardware and operating system costs and corporate registration costs and costs for auditors) . I would not be able to take any tax deductions on this unless I could prove that I had a reasonable expectation that the company would make a profit within 3 years.
On the other hand, if you purchase a Student Suite license, the cost to you would be $US 100.
