Access computer clusters remotely

Reading Time: < 1 minute

IT Services are launching an updated service to allow students and teaching staff to access PC clusters remotely

Due to social distancing restrictions, room capacities have been reduced, and as a result, there are fewer computers available in the clusters for students to use.

As part of IT Services’ End User Computing project, a new service will be launched from Monday 5 October to enable students and staff to remotely log into cluster PCs from their own computer or mobile device, after registering for the University’s new Multi-Factor Authentication service.

Once registered students and staff will be able to access PC cluster software 24/7 from any location with an internet connection using their own equipment.

This is an upgrade to the previous version of remote cluster access which was implemented earlier in 2020.

More information will soon be posted on the IT Services website:
