Using Individual Named-User Academic licenses for use in a computer lab, on a campus network, or with a HPC cluster is not recommended as a license is required for each user on each computer, and each license file must be set up separately.
Instead Gurobi offers two other types of licenses that are better suited for these situations.
WLS Academic License
A WLS (Web License Service) license allows you to run Gurobi Optimizer wherever you want, across regular machines or container environments (Docker, Kubernetes...) with floating capability. Each user should generate a WLS license for their own use.
Educational Institution Site License
Gurobi also offers a multi-user Educational Institution Site license that provides a central license token server; this eliminates the need to request and set up a license file for each user on each computer.
