Request an HPC account¶
All Apocrita account requests should include a created SSH key pair. The public part needs to be either attached on this form or uploaded using the Upload public SSH key form (QMUL users only). For security, we will only accept your public key if it meets our minimum requirements of 4096-bit RSA and the key pair is password protected.
Transferring, Sharing and Accessing Data
Users who would like to transfer, share or access data stored on the cluster should use our Globus service rather than requesting an account.
Undergraduates and MSc Students
Undergraduate and MSc students only use this form to request an HPC account after approval from the project supervisor. Use of GPUs is not permitted for Undergraduate and MSc students due to to limited resources.
All QMUL users automatically receive a Github account with an HPC account. If you are a QMUL user and require a Github only account (not an HPC account), please click here.
Requests for access from external collaborators will require approval from the QMUL sponsor and must be annually renewed by the sponsor. Use of GPUs is not permitted for external users due to to limited resources.
