Request an Account

William & Mary (including VIMS) faculty, staff, and students with computation- or data-intensive applications from any discipline are welcome to apply for accounts on the College's centrally-administered HPC clusters (SciClone and Chesapeake), which are both available at no cost to any member of the William & Mary community with a legitimate need for their services. A single account provides access to both clusters.

These clusters may also be made available on a case-by-case basis to external collaborators of W&M faculty, staff, and students, or to other academic users who are developing software tools or conducting research of direct interest to the W&M HPC community. Due to software licensing restrictions, we are generally unable to satisfy requests from industrial or commercial users.

You must have a WMuserid to request an HPC account. External collaborators must first be sponsored for and obtain an affiliate WMuserid.
