Request an Account

Request an HPC-Account

If you want to use the HPC cluster, you need to have an university account (e.g. abcd1234) and the account needs to be part of a cluster group. Cluster groups are basically the work groups which are using the cluster. (You can find a list and other informations about that here: Unix groups) Until now we were using a form on the home page of the scientific computing were you could request an HPC account. This process is now automated and you are able to join a group on your own. To do so, follow these simple steps:

  • Visit the user administration web interface.
  • Click on "Zugang zu HPC"  in the section "Anforderungen".
  • You will then be taken directly to the cluster group selection ...
  • ... where you need to select the group you want to join.
  • Submit your choice by clicking on "Übernehmen" ("Submit"). If your desired group isn't listed, please contact the .

An administrator will then check, and most likely confirm your request. After that you will be able to use your university account for logging into the cluster.

Note: If you accidentally joined the wrong group or if you simply want to switch to a other group, you follow the steps described above too.
