About Advanced Research Computing:

At the U of S, you have access to a variety of powerful Advanced Research Computing systems, facilities and services:

Accessing HPC resources on campus:

To use our high performance computing systems, you will need an account. To obtain one, you must generally be a principal investigator/faculty member or be sponsored by a faculty member.
Note: Students who are taking a class that requires the use of advanced computing will automatically be given accounts for the duration of the class.

To request an account:
  1. Email our Advanced Computing Consultants
  2. Briefly outline the work you wish to do and your technical requirements
  3. Include an abstract describing the project (for use on our website)
  4. Be prepared to provide, at a later date, a list of publications/theses/conference presentations to help demonstrate the value of these systems to funders.

Once you have an account, you can log directly into the system you wish to use using the SSH protocol.
Note: If you are off-campus, you will first need to connect to the  U of S Virtual Private Network (VPN).
