UB students are provided access to CCR compute resources at the request of faculty members teaching courses that require high performance computing.  


If you are a student taking a class that is using the CCR cluster, your instructor will request an account for you.  CCR staff will not create accounts at the request of students.  If you did not get an account, please ask your instructor to submit a help ticket.  When your account is ready, you will receive an account activation email.  Please follow the instructions in the email in a timely fashion.

Class accounts are valid only for the semester in which the class is being offered.  Please be sure to download any data you want to keep from your account before the last day of the semester.  We do NOT guarantee your account or data will be retained past the last day of the semester.  If for some reason, you do not complete the class and will be asking your professor for an extension, CCR MUST receive the request to extend your account from your professor by the last day of the semester!  

Special storage space for classes:

Some classes utilize large amounts of data and are granted access to a special course directory.  If your class was granted a shared directory, you will find it in: /projects/academic/courses/<course-abbreviation>


To request accounts for your class, please add them in Coldfront as described HERE
