Step 1: Create an HPC Account
Browse to https://portal.hpc.arizona.edu/ and log in using your NetID+. This will automatically create an HPC account for you.
Once you have an account, you will need a research sponsor to start using HPC. A research sponsor is a university member with faculty status and an HPC account.
You may send your PI/Faculty member a request by visiting https://portal.hpc.arizona.edu/portal/sendlink.php.
On the right-hand side, enter your sponsor's email address and click send. Your sponsor will then receive an email to authorize your account. Once your request has been authorized, you will receive an email with instructions for accessing the HPC systems.
If you request access with a sponsor who has already approved you, it will not warn you and will send them another email notification.
Note that it may take up to 15 minutes to receive a confirmation email and for your account to be officially activated.
If you do not receive an email verification after 15 minutes, you should contact your sponsor and confirm receipt and approval of the HPC account request. If your account has been approved but you have not received the verification, you should contact HPC Consulting and provide your NetID+, your name, and the email address of your sponsor.
