Who is eligible for an HPC account?
NYU HPC resources are available at no charge to full-time NYU faculty (other than NYU Medical School) and to all other NYU staff and students with full-time NYU faculty sponsorship (more...)
Getting an account on the NYU HPC clusters
First you need a valid NYU NetID. Your HPC sponsor can request one for you here. You also need a valid NYU Google account to receive emails, as does your HPC sponsor - contact us if you need assistance with this.
Next you need a faculty sponsor.
Finally, log into the NYU Identity Management service and follow the link to "Request HPC account". We have a walkthrough of the process here.
Renewing your HPC account
Each year, non-faculty users must renew their HPC account by filling in the account renewal form from the NYU Identity Management service. See Renewing your HPC account with IIQ for a walk-through of the process.
You can request a NetID for your student or collaborator here. The request form has additional information about affiliates.
Each year, your sponsored users must renew their account. You will need to approve the renewal by logging into the NYU Identity Management service. We have a walkthrough of the process, with screenshots, here.
Pre-approving a list of netids for class HPC accounts
Faculty (who can sponsor HPC accounts) can pre-approve requests in bulk - this is intended to streamline the process of registering a class to use the HPC facilities. Faculty can set this up via the NYU Identity Management service. We also have a walkthrough of the process here.
Getting an account with one of NYU partners
NYU partners with many state and national facilities with a variety of HPC systems and expertise. Contact us for assistance setting up a collaboration with any these.
