High Performance Computing Service

Applying for resources


Please note that we are currently offline in order to relocate the service to the West Cambridge Data Centre (please see the move page). During this period we can accept new application requests but will be unable to process them fully.

If you are a member of the University of Cambridge, to apply for resources please download the application form and email it to support'at'hpc.cam.ac.uk.

Otherwise, the appropriate form is here (but only return this please if we have asked you to do so).

The forms are in MS Word format, but are editable using OpenOffice.org (this may be included in your Linux distribution).

Please be sure not to inadvertently convert the file to .docx format.

Please note that the two declarations (one for the applying user, and one for the Principal Investigator) need to be ticked.

If you have submitted an application for resources on the new Darwin system and have heard nothing after one week, please email support'at'hpc.cam.ac.uk.
