Using pip to install gurobipy

Most Python installations come with the Python package management system “pip”. You can use pip to download and install the gurobipy extension simply by opening a terminal window and issuing the following command:

python -m pip install gurobipy

This command instructs the called Python interpreter to download gurobipy from the public PyPI server ( and install it into your Python environment. Note that our gurobipy installation package is self-contained, so you can use it without any other software installation steps.

After the installation succeeds, you should see gurobipy among the installed packages listed upon typing python -m pip list. For example:
